Man faces trial in death of son who killed himself with gun

A Detroit man faces trial on murder and other charges after his 9-year-old son found a shotgun at home and fatally shot himself.

Records show the trial for 45-year-old Christopher Head is scheduled to start Tuesday in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit.

Daylen Makhai Head was fatally shot in the head Nov. 9 on the city's west side. Police have said he was handling a loaded shotgun that wasn't secured.

Christopher Head and another child also were at the home.

The father pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder, but later withdrew the plea. He is also charged with involuntary manslaughter, child abuse and weapons offenses.
