The first trial of officer Joseph Weekley on a charge of involuntary manslaughter ended in a mistrial in June.
Weekley, a member of the Detroit Police Special Response Team, has admitted to unintentionally firing a shot that killed Aiyana Stanley-Jones during a raid seeking a murder suspect in 2010, the Detroit Free Press reported Wednesday.
Defense attorney Steve Fishman said throughout the trial the girl's death was a tragic accident, adding Weekley was not grossly negligent when police entered the girl's residence.
The shooting occurred during the filming of the police television reality show "First 48." Allison Howard, a second defendant and the program's producer, pleaded no contest last month to obstruction of justice for lying about presenting a recording of the raid to an attorney representing the girl's family in a civil lawsuit against the city, the Detroit News reported.
