LEWISBURG (WVVA) - A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man found guilty of manslaughter after he failed to show for his sentencing hearing.

Antonio Smith was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning in Greenbrier County for sentencing in the manslaughter death of Ira Harris. Smith's attorneys told the court that their client had left a voicemail stating his 'transportation had fallen through.'

Harris died in February 2012 after he was pushed down a flight of stairs by Smith during an altercation at a Lewisburg apartment. Smith was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in January 2014.
