Man convicted in Ky. officer hit and run

By PoliceOne Staff

LEXINGTON, Ky. — A Lexington man was found guilty Thursday of second-degree manslaughter in the hit-and-run death of Lexington police officer Bryan Durman.

Jurors convicted Glenn Doneghy, who was charged with murder, of a less severe charge of second-degree manslaughter after nearly 18 hours of deliberations, according to Lex 18.

When the accident happened last year, Durman was standing inside the open door of a parked car, facing the travel lanes of the highway. Durman had approached the vehicle to investigate a noise complaint, police said.

Prosecutors said Doneghy was driving an SUV and intentionally hit Durman.
