An Ankeny man accused of fatally shooting his teen daughter will stand trial next month.

51-year-old Scott Hazelbaker is charged with involuntary manslaughter and assault.

Ankeny police found 18-year-old Emily Hazelbaker inside their Delaware Avenue apartment on June 15th.  An autopsy showed she died from a single gunshot wound.

The girl’s father told investigators he intentionally pointed the gun at Emily but did not know the gun was loaded.
