Cop Must Face Charges For Shooting Girl, 10

She was killed during a misfired raid


DETROIT -A judge has refused to dismiss an involuntary manslaughter charge against a Detroit police officer in the fatal shooting of a young girl during a raid.

Aiyana Stanley-Jones, 7, was killed May 16, 2010, after officers searching for a murder suspect lobbed a flash grenade through a window and stormed into her family's first-floor flat. Police had said she was sleeping on the couch when she was shot in the head after officer Joseph Weekley's gun fired accidentally.
