Teen charged in accidental fatal shooting of 2-year-old brother
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a 13-year-old Ohio boy who accidentally shot and killed his 2-year-old brother while playing with a gun has been charged with reckless homicide.
The Dayton Daily News reports the toddler killed Monday afternoon at a home in Harrison Township was Jvonte Johnston. His brother had a denial plea entered on his behalf Tuesday during a juvenile court hearing. Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer says Tuesday that Jvonte's father, 34-year-old Jamahl Evans, has been charged in federal court with being a felon in possession of a gun.
Evans has appeared in court, telling a judge he wouldn't be hiring his own attorney. Plummer says investigators found two guns and marijuana prepared for sale inside Evans' home.
