MARLETTE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A Sanilac County man has pleaded guilty to charges related to the accidental fatal shooting of an 11-year-old boy who was an overnight guest at his home.

The Times Herald reports (https://bwne.ws/1q8rjaY ) the man made the plea Monday to firearm possession by a felon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was scheduled for trial May 15.

The man’s 12-year-old son pleaded guilty last month to reckless discharge of a firearm and a written sentence is expected this week.

Tyler Dunn died Nov. 23 from a rifle shot in Marlette Township, about 65 miles north of Detroit. Authorities say no adult was home.

The court will decide if the boy is sentenced as an adult or a juvenile. The Associated Press isn’t naming the father and son.
