Jury convicts carnival worker in stabbing death

ST. CHARLES — A former carnival worker is guilty of first-degree murder in the 2008 stabbing death of another man.

A Kane County jury deliberated less than two hours on Wednesday before convicting 62-year-old Arthur Manning guilty in the September 2008 death of 28-year-old Naromi Mannery of St. Charles.

Authorities say the two were involved in a confrontation at a house where Manning lived with other employees of Windy City Amusements.

Manning says he stabbed Mannery with a pocket knife after the younger man hit him in the face and rushed him.

It was the second trial for Manning in the slaying. He was convicted in 2009 and sentenced to 29 years in prison, but an appellate court overturned that conviction because jurors weren't told they could consider whether Manning acting in self-defense.
