Grand Jury to Review Fatal Hunting Incident

The case of a tragic hunting accident has been bound over to a Henry County grand jury.

A preliminary hearing was held Tuesday in Abbeville for 18-year-old Christopher Michael Newman.

He's charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a fellow hunter.

15-year-old Joey Drescher died after being shot in the chest with a high-powered rifle last month.

A grand jury will decide if Newman should stand trial.

He is currently free on a five thousand dollar bond.
