Uzi death trial set back to December
Published 8:11 pm, Wednesday, November 10, 2010
The Massachusetts jury trial of New Milford resident Domenico Spano, charged with involuntary manslaughter in the accidental Uzi death of an 8-year-old boy, was postponed Wednesday.
The trial of the third man charged, former Pelham, Mass. police chief Edward Fleury, is set Dec. 6.
While all three men are charged with involuntary manslaughter, Mr. Fleury is also charged with four counts of furnishing a machine gun to a minor. Mr. Fleury organized the event at which Christopher Bizlij, age 8, died.
Mr. Spano and Mr. Guiffre brought the weapons to the show and ran the event.
Christopher died Oct. 26, 2008, after he lost control of a Micro Uzi submachine gun he was firing at the Westerfield Sportman's Club in Massachusetts. The gun recoiled, shooting the boy in the head.
