A Lexington man serving time for killing his father has been let out of prison on shock probation.
Verdis Kyle Pennington, 20, pleaded guilty to manslaughter last year. He admitted killing his father back in 2010, but claimed Verdis Pennington, Jr. did awful things to both himself and his mother.
Investigators say Pennington originally told a grand jury he tripped and fired the gun by accident.
