HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - A prosecutor says he's looking at the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old woman in Henderson as more of a 'thrill kill' than an honest mistake.
But lawyers for 22-year-old defendant Colin Lowrey say the label is "uncalled for" and is asking for the shooting to be labeled accidental.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the comments came during a Wednesday bail hearing. Lowrey's bail will remain at $200,000 as he awaits a Nov. 19 preliminary hearing.
Lowrey faces an open murder charge in the death of Cherish Noelle Pincombe on Oct. 22.
He told police he thought his gun was unloaded when he pointed it at Pincombe's head and pulled the trigger.
Lowrey says he thinks Pincombe reloaded the gun while he wasn't looking.
