Marine Gets 1 Year for Infant Daughter's Death

October 25, 2010

A Marine security officer who was practicing drawing his handgun and accidentally shot his 9-month-old daughter to death has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Twenty-six-year-old Colton Jack Luman pleaded guilty in June to involuntary manslaughter in Chesapeake Circuit Court and was sentenced Monday.

The Virginian-Pilot reports court records show the infant was in a high chair at Luman's home on Naval Support Activity Norfolk, Northwest Annex, when the shooting occurred in February.
