Charges reduced in Parlier brother shoots, kills sister case

Thursday, November 03, 2011

A Parlier man accused of shooting and killing his sister is now facing less serious charges.

Jesus Nunez was originally arrested for murder after he shot and killed his sister, Leticia Casas, in March.

Investigators found her body after a neighbor reported hearing gunshots.

Nunez was arrested several hours later and later charged voluntary manslaughter. But Wednesday, those charges were reduced to involuntary manslaughter. He's also accused of endangering a child for firing his weapon within a few feet of a little girl.

Nunez says it was an accident that happened because he was high on meth, and scared of some dogs.
