Father pleads guilty in accidental death of son

A Pennsylvania man has plead guilt to charges of involuntary manslaughter, flight to avoid prosecution and endangering the welfare of children in the shooting death of his 9-year-old son. According to prosecutors, twin brothers Christian and Stephen were playing with their father's hunting rifle when Stephen unintentionally shot and killed his brother.
At the sentencing the District Attorney said the father's behavior was part of a continuing course of conduct in which the boys were permitted to play with a number of dangerous weapons, including guns, knives, swords and hatchets.
"It needs to be made clear that this wasn't just a bad incident on one day, but a series of bad parental decisions and bad judgments that ultimately had a very terrible conclusion."
Ohh shoot.
