Man convicted of manslaughter skipped sentencing, wanted by US Marshals

A man convicted of manslaughter in a 2021 shooting that left a woman dead did not show up for his sentencing hearing on Monday and is currently being sought by U.S. Marshals, according to the Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney's office. Shane Walters, a Taylor Mill native, pleaded guilty on Feb. 2 to one count of second-degree manslaughter; he was arrested and charged two years prior, in February 2021. This guilty plea was part of a plea deal, where prosecutors recommended a sentence of five years in prison for the manslaughter charge. In 2021, 33-year-old Megan McCray was discovered dead inside Walters' Knollwood Drive home on Feb. 10.
