UPSTATE MAN CHARGED IN HUNTING DEATH OF HIS NEPHEW

HOPKINTON, N.Y. A northern New York man faces a manslaughter charge after police say he shot and killed his nephew while the two were hunting.

Authorities in Saint Lawrence County say 40-year-old Mark Sharp of Norfolk was killed Tuesday evening in the town of Hopkinton. Sheriff's deputies have arrested his uncle -- 45-year-old John Boots of Massena and charged him in connection with the shooting.

The sheriff's Department says Boots recklessly caused his nephew's death by the discharge of his rifle while the two men were hunting in a wooded area on state land.

Sharp was pronounced dead at Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
