Last month, we posted two news stories about the death of 18-year-old Kansan Beau Arndt, who was killed while goose hunting by a single rifle shot apparently fired by a 57-year-old Topeka man, who was taken into custody but not arrested. Your comments poured in, most arguing that the shooter should be charged and discussing what the charge should be. Here's the latest, from The Capital-Journal:
_A Topeka business owner [Theron Thomas Kent] was charged Wednesday in Lyon County District Court in Emporia with involuntary manslaughter and three misdemeanors linked to last month's accidental shooting death of 18-year-old hunter Beau Arndt. . . .
State law defines involuntary manslaughter as an unlawful killing committed recklessly, during the commission of a lawful act in an unlawful manner, or linked to the violation of any state law enacted for the protection of human life or safety._
