A video of an 8-year-old Connecticut boy accidentally shooting and killing himself with an Uzi submachine gun at a Massachusetts gun fair is expected to be shown to a jury in the manslaughter trial of a former police chief whose company co-sponsored the show.

The Hampden Superior Court jury also is expected to hear testimony Thursday from the boy's father, who videotaped the 2008 accident at a firing range in Westfield, about 100 miles west of Boston.

Former Pelham police Chief Edward Fleury has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Ashford, Conn., resident Christopher Bizilj (buh-SEEL').

The judge says jurors can see video of the shooting but won't be allowed to hear the audio because it's especially traumatic as the father screams and prays his son is OK.
