A man who admits fatally shooting his daughter at their family's suburban Cleveland home has been indicted on an aggravated murder charge.

Sixty-three-year-old Jamal Mansour told Rocky River police he was angry when he shot 27-year-old Tahani Mansour. The indictment was handed up Wednesday. Mansour is being held on a $4.5 million bond.

Authorities haven't said why Jamal Mansour became so enraged he fired three rounds at his youngest child. He told a judge it was an accident after his arrest Sept. 27.

Friends say Tahani Mansour was bright and energetic and had recently been hired as a clinical pharmacist by the Cleveland Clinic.

Jamal Mansour's attorney referred to a previous comment that said Mansour loved his family.

Mansour was born in Jordan and came to the U.S. in 1978.
