SHINGLETOWN, Calif. (AP) - A northern California man is accused
of shooting his 50-year-old son because he didn't like his country
karaoke singing.

A Shasta County judge on Tuesday ordered 70-year-old William
Henry Oller Sr. to stand trial on attempted murder and assault
charges in the January shooting, The Record Searchlight of Redding
reported.

Oller is accused of opening fire on his 50-year-old son, William
Carr Oller Jr., at the son's Shingletown home.

The newspaper says the son suffered a gunshot wound to the arm
and other injuries.

Aaron Williams, the attorney for the elder Oller, says there is
no evidence to show the shooting was intentional, and his client
may have acted in self-defense when he was approached by his son.
