A 39-year-old man is charged after a two-year-old boy fatally shot himself by accident in Saint Paul.
Earl Williams of St. Paul turned himself in Christmas night and was arrested and charged with manslaughter in connection with the death. Prosecutors say Williams left a gun unattended while watching his girlfriend’s child and fled the state after the boy accidentally shot himself last week. The boy has been identified as Jayse Damir Wilson. His death marked the city’s 34th homicide of the year.
