Man pleads to voluntary manslaughter, gets 7 to 15 years

August 20, 2018

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man has been sentenced to seven to 15 years in a shooting death in Pittsburgh’s Crafton Heights section two years ago.

Thirty-five-year-old Julius Stackhouse pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and a firearms count Monday.

He was originally charged with homicide and conspiracy in the death of 25-year-old Domanek Cabbagestalk, who was found shot on a front porch in August 2016 and died several days later.

Investigators said the two had an argument outside an apartment, and after the victim allegedly hit a woman who has a child with Stackhouse, the defendant emerged with a gun and fired several shots.
