A former Carmel track coach has been convicted of voluntary manslaughter for the shooting death of his daughter's boyfriend, but was acquitted of second-degree murder.
Sixty-three-year-old Willie Suber was also convicted of assault with a deadly weapon for the accidental ricochet shooting of his daughter, Selena.
Suber, the longtime coach at the Stevenson School, tearfully testified during the non-jury trial that he shot 26-year-old Danny Flores in self-defense.
He says Flores came after him with a bat after he tried to defuse an argument between Flores and his daughter.
He shot Flores between the eyes.
Another bullet apparently ricocheted off the bat and struck Selena Suber in the chest.
Suber faces up to 29 years in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 14.
