A Columbia man has been convicted of manslaughter after a two day trial in Marion County.

Malcolm Jamal Husband, 26, was convicted in the 2013 shooting death of James Forester Crenshaw II. According to Marion County Sheriff's Department investigators, Crenshaw was shot around 8:00 p.m. Nov. 14th outside of a residence at 1275 Hwy. 13 South.

Shortly after the incident, Husband was taken into custody by Columbia police officers after a car matching a description was stopped. He was booked in the Marion County Jail and given a $1 million bond in connection to the crime.

Crenshaw died at Forrest General Hospital in the early hours of Nov. 15th.

According to a press release from Fifteenth Circuit District Attorney Hal Kittrell, Husband is set to be sentenced by Jude Prentiss Harrell on Jan. 27, 2015. Husband is exposed to a maximum twenty year sentence for his conviction in the 2013 shooting death of Crenshaw.

The case was investigated by the Marion County Sheriff's Department with assistance from the Columbia Police Department.

“This case is another example for our community that differences cannot be settled with a gun,” said from Fifteenth Circuit District Attorney Hal Kittrell. “It is a tragic loss of life,” said Kittrell.
