Donald Howe, Sr. ordered to pay $1,000 fine

A northeast Missouri man, who pleaded Guilty to a lesser count in connection with a 2019 hunting accident that killed his grandson, has been sentenced to pay a fine.

Donald Howe Sr. of Edina was in Knox County Circuit Court Tuesday, where he was sentenced to a $1,000 fine. Howe pleaded Guilty to a misdemeanor count of hunting on private land without permission. In return, counts of second-degree involuntary manslaughter and unlawful possession of a firearm were dropped. Howe was charged in mid-April 2020, six months after the mid-November 2019 deer hunting accident on private property outside Baring. Prosecutors alleged that 17-year old Andrew Howe of Edina was killed when his grandfather mistook him for a deer, and shot him. The younger Howe was fatally shot with an 8 millimeter hunting rifle, a weapon his grandfather wasn't supposed to have.

Donald Howe pleaded Guilty in 2007 in Lewis County to a felony driving while intoxicated charge.
