WOODBURY - A Harlem man who allegedly helped a Woodmere man kill himself will plead guilty to manslaughter in a plea deal.

Kenneth Minor will serve 12 years in jail for the 2009 stabbing death of motivational speaker Jeffrey Locker.

Minor had initially been convicted of second-degree murder in 2011, but the conviction was overturned.

Minor claims Locker asked him to help stage his death so Locker's family could collect the life insurance money.
