  Original Published: 5/1/2013The Ohio Fifth District Court of Appeals has upheld the murder conviction of a Mansfield man accused of killing another man outside of Kosta's Wings and Billards.In March 2012, Carees Linzy, 39, was convicted of murder with a gun specification, having weapons while under disability, carrying a concealed weapon, tampering with evidence and possession of criminal tools. On Dec. 26, 2011, Linzy got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical confrontation with Gary Hall, 34,  outside Kosta's. Linzy shot Hall three times. Richland County Common Pleas Court Judge James Henson sentenced Linzy to 21 years to life in prison. Linzy is serving his time at the Trumbull Correctional Institution. Linzy raised six assignments of error with the court of appeals. Linzy claims in one of the assignments of error that the judge presiding over the trial did not grant a motion opposing a jury view of the scene where the incident occurred. The appeals judges said Linzy did not prove that he did not mean to kill Hall. Linzy is up for parole in November 2029.
