Man on trial for murder after son, 9, found gun and killed himself

A jury has been selected in the trial of a Detroit man charged with murder after his 9-year-old son found a shotgun at home and fatally shot himself.
Prosecutors said jurors were picked Tuesday, and Wayne County Circuit Court records show proceedings for 45-year-old Christopher Head will continue Wednesday morning.
Daylen Makhai Head was fatally shot in the head Nov. 9 on the city's west side. Police have said he was handling a loaded shotgun that wasn't secured.
Christopher Head and another child also were at the home.
The father pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder, but later withdrew the plea. He is also charged with involuntary manslaughter, child abuse and weapons offenses.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
