Mobile man charged with murder in fatal hunting incident

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A man who killed his stepfather in a
deer hunting accident has been charged with criminally negligent
homicide.

Baldwin County District Attorney Judy Newcomb says 24-year-old
Clayton Albert Crane of Bay Minette was indicted by a grand jury in the shooting last January of 42-year-old Larry Vincent "Vince"
Rook while they were hunting in the early evening.

A jail spokesman says Crane surrendered at the Baldwin County
Corrections Center and was released on $5,000 bail Sunday.

Investigators say Crane was about 100 yards away when he shot
Rook in the head with a .270-caliber rifle.

Criminally negligent homicide is punishable by up to a year in
jail.
