Teen Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter
November 19, 2003
LILLINGTON, N.C. -- A juvenile is now being charged with
involuntary manslaughter in the death of 14-year-old Daniel Sheets last
District Attorney Tom Lock decided there was enough
evidence to charge the 15-year-old boy in juvenile court. After the teen was
served with a juvenile petition Wednesday, he was released to his parents.
Sheets died Nov. 11 after being shot in the woods of
western Harnett County near the town of Broadway. He was hunting with the
suspect and two other boys.
Detectives say the suspect's story changed several times
after Sheets' body was found last Wednesday. The juvenile first told
investigators he didn't know who shot Sheets. He then said he shot Sheets
because he thought he was a deer. Later, the juvenile admitted that the
accident occurred as a result of "horseplay" between himself and Sheets.
The boy is due in juvenile court Friday.
