EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The retrial began Tuesday in Everett for a Marysville man who shot his daughter to death in 2008.
Richard Peters was convicted of manslaughter in 2009 and won a new trial in 2011 when an appeals court said the trial judge made a mistake on jury instructions.
The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/WsRieZ ) Peters told investigators the gun fired accidentally as he was removing the ammunition.
Prosecutors say he was drunk when the gun fired. The bullet hit 6-year-old Stormy between the eyes.
Jurors will be asked to decide if Peters was reckless and deliberately ignored the risks.
