A Henderson County woman who was babysitting a toddler who died in an accidental shooting was charged in her death on Monday.
Deputies charged Heather Ann Bradburn Stepp, 28, with one felony count of involuntary manslaughter.
This charge arose as a result of the death of 2-year-old Abagail Newman on Oct. 26.
Henderson County authorities say Abagail was accidentally shot in her upper body by a 20-gauge shotgun.
What about the gun owner? What about the incredibly irresponsible decision to have a shotgun in a home with kids? Unless the young babysitter brought the gun with her along with her homework, I'd say the parents should be the ones facing charges.
