After two hours of deliberation, a Tom Green County jury found 47-year-old Allen Schmidt guilty of manslaughter, Tuesday night.

The same jury will determine sentencing, beginning Wednesday morning at 9:30. Schmidt is facing 2-20 years in prison for the manslaughter charge.

Schmidt helped another man push a truck into the middle of Christoval Road, outside the Party Ranch Bar.

A motorcycle driven by Sergeant Donald Di Pietro, a 28-year-old Goodfellow instructor, collided with the vehicle in the roadway. Di Pietro died of injuries sustained in the collision.
