Chester man pleads guilty to second manslaughter charge

CHESTER, S.C. — A Chester man convicted of manslaughter in a 2010 death has pleaded guilty to killing another man in 2009.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports that Keith Ramon Keener pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter Tuesday in the 2009 shooting death of 41-year-old Eddie James Hall. Investigators think Hall was lying on his couch when a bullet came through the wall and struck him.

Keener was sentenced to 25 years in prison, which he will serve at the same time he continues a 27-year sentence he was given in an earlier killing.

Keener pleaded guilty three years ago to voluntary manslaughter in a 2010 shooting death after prosecutors said he fired into a crowd at a nightclub.

Twenty-four--year-old Antonio Price was killed and two other people were hurt.
