MONCKS CORNER, South Carolina — A Moncks Corner man has been convicted of killing his son and wounding his son's fiancee during a fight two years ago.

A Berkeley County jury returned the guilty verdict on charges of murder and attempted murder against 62-year-old Johnny Irby on Thursday.

Irby was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Irby killed 35-year-old Telly Irby and wounded 32-year-old Michelle Wiggins in August 2012.

Witnesses said Telly Irby had hit his father in the head during an argument about the son's plans for the future, and his father got a gun and shot him.
