Involuntary manslaughter charge for man accused in deadly hunting accident
A hunter accused of killing one Ferrum College student and wounding another will face an involuntary manslaughter charge.
Franklin County (Va.) General District Court Judge George Jones certified the manslaughter charge against 31-year-old Jason David Cloutier on Wednesday. The case now goes to circuit court.
Jones dismissed two other charges, trespassing and reckless handling of a firearm.
Authorities say Cloutier mistook 23-year-old Jessica Goode, of Winchester, and 20-year-old Regis Boudinot for deer while hunting in a wooded area adjacent to the college campus on Nov. 11.
Goode died after being shot in the chest. Boudinot was shot in the hand.
