Cain sentenced on manslaughter, other charges

A Russell Springs man was officially sentenced in Russell Circuit Court on Tuesday on manslaughter and other charges dating back to an incident more than two years ago.

Haiden Cain, who was originally facing a murder charge for his role in a 2020 collision that resulted in the death of 26-year-old Janson Sallee, was sentenced to 20 years on Tuesday by Circuit Judge Vernon Miniard, per the plea agreement reached last month.

The plea agreement amended the murder charge to second-degree manslaughter and two first degree assault charges were amended to two second degree assault charges in relation to two individuals who were in the other vehicle that Cain struck and were flown from the scene of that wreck.

Cain, 30, remains lodged in the Russell County Detention Center.
