HOLMES COUNTY, Ohio — An Amish man has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of a 15-year-old Amish girl who was shot in the head in December of last year.
Holmes County Prosecutor Steve Knowling tells Fox 8 News that Marion R. Yoder, 28, of Holmes County, was charged with the crime after reviewing ballistic and autopsy reports in the death of Rachel Yoder.
According to Knowling, Marion Yoder was clearing a muzzle-loading rifle he owns after going hunting in December of 2011. Yoder fired a shot into the air to clear the rifle and the bullet struck the teen in the head as she rode in a buggy.

Reminds me of a guy who was blinded by snow during an elk hunt in a blizzard. He could see well enough to shoot at "something that moved" what thought was an elk, but his 54 cal maxi-ball went thru the neck of his hunting partner, DRT severed his spine at C-3. Manslaughter first degree, not simply a "hunting accident.".

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
