Twin Falls Man Charged With Rape To Face Trial

Authorities say a 19-year-old woman was killed by gunfire at her apartment in Everett.

    

The Daily Herald reports a 22-year-old man who lived with her has been booked into jail for investigation of second-degree domestic-violence manslaughter.

    

Police say the man told them he accidentally shot the woman, who he said was his girlfriend, Thursday night while playing with a gun he found.

    

Police allege he caused the death due to criminal negligence. It will be up to prosecutors to decide whether to file charges.

    

A judge set bail at $100,000, citing the nature of the death and concerns about the man's mental health.

    

The man's public defender says there was no intent to harm anyone.
