OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the first-degree manslaughter conviction and 32-year-prison sentence of a Pittsburg County man.

The court on Friday rejected an appeal by 30-year-old Lloyd Brandon Buck on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct.


Buck was charged with first-degree murder in the 2014 beating death of 58-year-old Kenneth Flick of Quinton, but was convicted on the lesser manslaughter count.

Buck testified during his trial that he hit Flick several times with a hammer after Flick threatened him, then hit him in the face.
