Robert Odom, 20, is charged with manslaughter in the death of 17-year-old Allison Aubrecht. Investigators say several teenagers were at Odom's home Sunday night when Odom pulled out his new gun and started showing it off.

Police say he pointed it at the back of Aubrecht's head and pulled the trigger, unaware there was a bullet in the chamber.
