CONCORD, N.H. -- A man accused of fatally shooting a fellow hunter has been charged with negligent homicide.

Robert Proulx, 58, of Manchester, was shot to death Jan 3. at Corbin Park, a private shooting preserve in Croydon.

On Thursday, a Sullivan County grand jury indicted Steven Laro, of Concord, charging him with negligent homicide, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon and illegal use of a firearm.

Proulx, the owner of Wildlife Taxidermy and Sports Center in Manchester, was one of six in a hunting party at the preserve the night he was shot.

The group, which was pursuing elk, boar and deer, had split up for the hunt, authorities said at the time. Two of the men took stands in the woods and four others, including Proulx, were hunting on foot.

Corbin Park is one of two private shooting preserves in the state, which is not bound by regular state hunting seasons. Fish and Game said the death is the only known fatality in the park's history dating to 1890. The death also is only the second hunting-related fatality in the state in the last 10 years.

Laro is a former Franklin police officer.
