Smith to claim shooting an accident?

Based on statements made during jury selection and at a Jackson-Denno hearing on the admissibility of two statements he made to the GBI, it appears Ronald Eugene Smith’s defense team will attempt to frame the shooting of Charles Graves Adams as an accident. Judge Tommy Wilson ruled both statements would be admitted when the trial resumes Tuesday in Lamar superior court. Smith, 29, is charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and tampering with evidence. He allegedly shot Adams in the face with a Remington 30-.06 rifle rifle January 30, 2009 in a methamphetamine deal gone bad. Adams died in a bloody heap on the doorstep of his duplex at 488 Grove Street. Smith lived across the road at 501 Grove St.
