Man Charged In Road Rage Incident On South Moore Road Dies After Lengthy Illness

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

A man charged with murder in a road rage incident last December died early Wednesday after a lengthy illness.

Richard Manning had been in custody since the incident. The sheriff's office had been providing round-the-clock guards at his hospital bed.

Norman Gallman, 39, was shot and killed after he went back to question Manning at his car about allegedly cutting him off on South Moore Road.

The victim's wife said her husband told Manning, "Hey, be careful. Watch where you're going." She said she then heard a gunshot and saw her husband holding his stomach as he staggered back to their car. She said when he got in the car he said, "Oh, my God. Call 911."

He died a short time later.

Manning was 62 at the time of his arrest. When a lengthy bond hearing was held at which the wife testified, he was at Erlanger Hospital and unable to attend.

Roy Exum: 10 Tasks For This Week

In 1993 a 95-year-old man named William Snell created a list called “Life’s Little Instructions.” His list has swirled around in the Internet ever since and it is, indeed, a delightful checklist to keep us focused in the right direction. Curiously, when I read over it this past weekend, it dawned on me that if each of us would try to accomplish just 10 items on Mr. Snell’s list ... (click for more)
