A woman who admitted she accidentally shot and killed her grandson will spend the next year on probation.

Last summer, 57-year-old Tina Owens said she thought she heard something or someone outside, so she went on the porch and fired her gun three times to the possible intruders away. One of the bullets went into the trailer below where her grandson, 11-year-old William Owens, was asleep in his bed. 

Thursday, both the defense and prosecuting attorneys said no justice would be served by putting Owens in jail.

Tina Owens said that she has to live with this the rest of her life.

The court agreed this was truly a tragic incident.
