CINCINNATI – A Cincinnati man charged with fatally shooting his 11-year-old daughter wants out of jail to attend her funeral.
Deandre Kelley's attorney filed the motion Wednesday asking that his client be allowed to attend Saturday's funeral of Shanti Lanza. Kelley is charged with reckless homicide in his daughter's death.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1j86jwp) reports a hearing is scheduled for Thursday on Kelley's request.
Police say the 34-year-old Kelley fired shots into the air outside the house Sunday while arguing with the girl's mother. One of them hit the girl in her bedroom, where she had fled when her parents started arguing. Kelley's attorney says the shooting was accidental.
