NEW BRIGHTON, Pa.
The lawyer for a Pennsylvania bride accused of killing her niece after the wedding says the fatal shooting was an accident.
Police say George-Harvan, of Conway, shot 21-year-old Katelyn Francis on Thursday as they left a bar in New Brighton, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh. The wedding was held earlier that day.
Police say they were arguing about who would be the designated driver when the bride grabbed a gun from her husband's truck and shot Francis, of Fairmont, W.Va.
Lawyer J. Lauson Cashdollar says George-Harvan simply tried to move the gun when it went off. She's charged with homicide and is being held without bail.
