An Ankeny father will plead guilty to shooting and killing his daughter.

Scott Hazelbaker shot his daughter, 18-year old Emily Hazelbaker, in their Ankeny apartment in June.

Hazelbaker says he didn’t know the gun was loaded and had no intention of killing her.

Hazelbaker’s attorney told the Des Moines Register his client will plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter later this month.

He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison but his attorney says he’ll ask for probation.
