A dad has been accused of killing his daughter after claiming she’d shot herself in the face by mistake.

Ronald Lee McMullen Jr. from Oklahoma in the US was charged with first-degree murder after investigators accused him of molesting and then murdering his 22-year-old daughter Kailee McMullen in 2017, People reports.

The 45-year-old man, who’s on trial for his daughter’s murder now, firmly maintains that his daughter fatally shot herself in the head – even after her friends testified that she’d told them she’d been molested in the months prior to her death, Daily Mail reports.

Multiple witnesses have testified that the former cheerleader had been complaining of her dad’s abuse, according to Fox News. “She told me her dad hit her and made her nose bleed,” one witness testified.

The trial is expected to continue for the next two weeks.
