Corey Cobb pleads Guilty to manslaughter, drug charges

A Hannibal man, charged in connection with a deadly shooting in early-June 2020, has pleaded Guilty to two counts and has been sentenced to prison.

Corey Cobb was in Marion County Circuit Court Tuesday for a trial setting. Records show that Cobb pleaded Guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter, and one count of drug possession in a prison, as part of a settlement with prosecutors. In return, they dropped counts of armed criminal action, unlawful possession of a weapon and evidence tampering. He had earlier been charged with one count of 2nd degree murder, but that was dropped earlier this year by Prosecuting Attorney Luke Bryant. After the plea, Cobb was then sentenced to 17 years in prison. Cobb admitted his part in the June 4th, 2020 shooting death of 45-year old Billy Williams of Hannibal. He died of his wounds at Hannibal Regional Hospital.

The incident happened at a home in the 2100 block of Gordon Street.
