A Greene County man who was sentenced to up to 23 months in prison for involuntary manslaughter in the death of his stepfather during an argument over flowers placed on a grave has been granted an early release from custody.

Scott Rodeheaver, 51, of Jefferson entered a general plea of guilty to the charge in the death of Charles Rodeheaver, 69. He had been charged with criminal homicide over the fatal confrontation between the two men on Dec. 2, 2010.

The victim died six days after he was punched outside the Route 40 Classic Diner in Redstone, Fayette County. Charles Rodeheaver fell and struck his head on concrete when Scott Rodeheaver punched him, police said.

Rodeheaver was sentenced to 6 to 23 months in prison in August, but he was granted early parole in December. Judge Gerald Solomon approved early release at the request of Rodeheaver's attorney, Sam Davis of Uniontown. Davis said in a petition that upon his release, Rodeheaver has an opportunity at employment.

Solomon's order indicates Rodeheaver will be on house arrest with electronic monitoring for at least the first six months of his release from prison.
