emily hazelbakerAn Ankeny father will plead guilty to the shooting death of his daughter Tuesday.

Scott Hazelbaker is expected to enter a guilty plea to involuntary manslaughter at the Polk County courthouse.

In June, Hazelbaker shot and killed his 18-year old daughter, Emily, at their Ankeny apartment.

Scott Hazelbaker says he didn’t know the gun was loaded and didn’t want to hurt his daughter.

His attorney says he’ll ask for the judge to sentence Scott Hazelbaker to probation.
