PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — A young Paducah man charged with fatally shooting a 3-year-old boy in his care has entered a guilty plea.
The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/120BCyN) reports Nicholas Barbee was originally charged with manslaughter in the death of Braydion Matlock on Feb. 9, but pleaded guilty Thursday in McCracken Circuit Court to a charge of reckless homicide.
Barbee was caring for Matlock, the son of his girlfriend, Maria Lopez, when the shooting occurred.
Barbee told police he accidentally shot the boy.
