Cincy father pleads guilty in girl's shootiing death



Published: Wed, April 2, 2014 @ 2:12 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A Cincinnati man has pleaded guilty in the accidental shooting death of his 11-year-old daughter and has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Deandre Kelley, 34, pleaded guilty to one count of reckless homicide in an emotional hearing today in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. In exchange, prosecutors dropped charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering children and a weapons charge.

Kelley’s attorney, Hugh McCloskey Jr., says that after talking the case over with the judge, his client realized that a six-year sentence was the best deal he was going to get.

Prosecutors say Kelley was drunk Jan. 12 when he fought with his longtime girlfriend and fired two gunshots into the air. One bullet hit the couple’s daughter, 11-year-old Shanti Lanza, who had been hiding in an upstairs bedroom.
