Vestal Man Indicted for Manslaughter

July 22, 2010 Updated Apr 4, 2008 at 8:54 AM EDT

On April 3, 2008, the Broome County Grand Jury handed up an indictment charging Kenneth A. Hawkins (33) of Vestal, New York with Manslaughter in the First Degree. Hawkins is charged in connection with the March 15, 2008 shooting death of Curtis Jones (36) of Binghamton, New York.

The case was investigated by the Binghamton Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Christopher D. Grace.

An indictment is merely an accusation and is not evidence of guilt. As with every defendant in a criminal case, Hawkins is presumed innocent unless and until he enters a plea of guilty or is proven guilty at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
