MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

A man has been indicted for the Russian roulette shooting death of a Middletown woman.

Deangelo Jones, 19, was charged last month after 20-year-old Amanda Blevins was shot in the head.

He ws indicted by the Butler County Grand Jury and is facing charges for involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence and possessing a defaced firearm.

Jones told police he and Blevins were getting ready to play Russian roulette on Sept. 6 when he stepped out of the room. He said Blevins then began playing the game on her own. Hearing the empty chambers, Jones said he went back into the room to take the gun from Blevins when it fired in his hands.

When police arrived on scene, they found Blevins with a gunshot wound to the head. She was transported to Miami Valley Hospital where she died from her injuries.

Jones fled the scene to throw the gun into a nearby river but returned to the scene a few hours later and turned himself in. The gun was recovered by the Butler County Water Rescue Team with on spent round in the cylinder and the others empty.

This is not the first time Jones has been in trouble for possession of a gun. He was forced to take corrective thinking classes after he brought a gun to Lakota West High School earlier this year.
