A Cincinnati man charged in the accidental shooting death of his 11-year-old daughter planned to ask a judge Thursday to let him out of jail to attend her funeral, while a county prosecutor criticized the girl’s family for their roles in the matter.

An attorney for the man, Deandre Kelley, filed a motion Wednesday asking that his client be allowed to attend Saturday’s services for his daughter Shanti Lanza. The motion said Kelley is unable to post the $500,000 bond to get out of jail but wants a furlough under “appropriate law enforcement” supervision.

Kelley’s attorney, Hugh McCloskey Jr., declined to comment until after a 1 p.m. hearing Thursday to decide the matter.

More serious charges were also filed against Kelley, 34, who had pleaded not guilty to reckless homicide, which carries a prison term of one to five years.
