VALLEJO, Calif. — A Vallejo man was convicted today of voluntary manslaughter and a weapons charge but acquitted of murder in the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend, an off-duty Richmond police officer.

Quartus Hinton, 29, a parolee with a lengthy criminal record, was accused of killing Kaliah Harper on Nov. 24, 2006. The Solano County jury of eight women and four men deliberated more than three days in Vallejo before reaching its verdict this morning.
