COURT DATE: Hazelbaker Trial Set For Next Month
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.
