Man gets five years in prison for role in Covington killing

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        COVINGTON — Emanuel Coulter, 24, of Cincinnati, was sentenced Monday to five years in prison for his role in the death of Charles Lester Sherman, a transient found dead leaning against a retaining wall at 10th and Washington streets in October.

        Mr. Coulter pleaded guilty to complicity to manslaughter in late April.

        Originally facing a charge of murder, he has agreed to help police locate others believed to be involved in the killing.

        Police say Mr. Sherman's death was the result of a fight over drugs.
