Lawton woman waives preliminary hearing in manslaughter trial

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton woman accused in the July shooting death of her boyfriend waived her preliminary hearing.

Shainice Owens was charged with first-degree manslaughter in the death of her boyfriend, Joseph Higgins. She told investigators she and her boyfriend had been arguing in their home, and both of them grabbed guns. She said she accidentally shot him in the neck as she was waving the weapon at him.

The judge ordered Owens to return to court in two weeks, and that's when he will set a trial date.
