Father Faces Trial After Claiming Daughter Committed Suicide

Ronald Lee McMullen Jr., 43, will be tried in the shooting death of his 22-year-old daughter, Kailee on June 29, 2017.

Ronald called 911 and claimed that his daughter had committed suicide by shooting to the face. Authorities were suspicious about Kailee's death. 

According to reports, Ronald was covered blood. At the scene, authorities tried to restrain him from wiping it off. They also analyzed the gunpowder and indicated that the firearm used in the shooting was fired 18 inches away from the victim. Detective Brian Franks told the judge that the gun was fired "outside of her reach."

He is being held without bond for first-degree murder charges.
