An eastern Idaho man has been convicted for the second time in the 2009 beating death of a Pocatello bar bouncer.

The Idaho State Journal reports that a Bannock County jury on Friday found 64-year-old Martin Edmo Ish guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of 56-year-old Eugene Lorne Red Elk. The case had gone cold but was reopened in 2015. Ish was convicted in 2017 of manslaughter in the killing of Red Elk by striking him in the head in the parking lot of Duffy's Tavern.

That conviction was overturned by the Idaho Supreme Court last year over concerns about the justifications prosecutors provided in disqualifying a potential juror.
