CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio man charged with reckless homicide in the fatal shooting of his 11-year-old daughter wants out of jail to attend her funeral.

Deandre Kelley's attorney filed a motion with the court Wednesday asking that he be allowed to go to the Saturday funeral of his daughter, Shanti Lanza, who was fatally shot last weekend in Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1j86jwp ) reports that a noon hearing has been scheduled before Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Melissa Powers, who will make the decision.

Police said the 34-year-old Kelley fired shots into the air outside the house Sunday while arguing with the girl's mother. One of them hit the girl in her bedroom, where she had fled when her parents started arguing.

Kelley's attorney said the shooting was accidental.
