The woman from Tennessee who was accidentally shot in the back of the head by her 11-year-old son, is now facing charges of child abuse for leaving the gun in a place where the child was able to reach it.
35-year-old Stacy Duggan was arrested on Monday and arraigned on charges of child neglect and probation violation.
The couple’s son allegedly found the .22-caliber derringer pistol between the mattress and slats of a bunk bed.
Just a week before, investigators said Duggan was shot in the back of the head by her son in their home in what was described as a likely accident.
Stacy’s husband, Daniel Duggan, also faces charges of child abuse.
Daniel Duggan, 37, was previously charged with child abuse after his son was injured in a 2011 car accident that left him with a cognitive disability.
Daniel Duggan has been freed on a $2,500 bond.
