SHOSHONE, IDAHO — A south-central Idaho man who shot and killed his adult daughter has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
The Times-News reports that 61-year-old Johnathan Pugh entered the plea on Friday in Fifth District Court, in connection with the May 9 death of 36-year-old Malani Lang.
Court documents say Pugh and Lang had recently reunited a week before the shooting.
Pugh told the court a man brought a pistol into Pugh's saddle shop in Shoshone to use to buy a saddle.
Pugh says he later drank four alcoholic drinks and smoked marijuana with Lang before they got into an argument about Lang being put up for adoption when she was a child.
Pugh says he held the pistol to his head before the gun went off, hitting Lang in the head. She was flown to a hospital where she died.
Pugh is scheduled to be sentenced January 10.
