Vermont Hunting Accident Will Go To Trial
By Dave Hurteau
From WCAX News:
A plea deal has fallen apart for a Georgia, Vt., man charged with manslaughter for a hunting accident.
Thirty-nine-year-old Timothy Madden has been awaiting trial for shooting his best friend David Jenkins while the pair were deer hunting in Milton in 2007. . . Madden rejected an initial plea deal in June that would have required him to spend a year in jail. Now if he's convicted Madden could spend up to 15 years in prison.
