ST. JOSEPH — A Clinton County man originally accused of second-degree murder has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
Kyle William Musser of Gower, entered the guilty plea on Friday after the state filed amended charges from second-degree murder to voluntary manslaughter. Clinton County Prosecutor William Burris says the felony carries five to 15 years in prison.
Burris said the prosecution asked for a suspension of the sentence with a recommended five-year probation.
Musser was charged in connection with the death of 33-year-old Kurt Brinton of Gower after a fight outside a bar in October.
