The exact amount of the fine Jamie de Marichalar -- ex-husband of Elena, the king's daughter -- must pay was not reported. Sources from an anti-shooting organization told ThinkSpain the fine could be as low as $194, though in other similar cases fines started at $777.
Felipe Juan Froilan, now 14, was 12 years old when he shot himself. He had been playing with a gun at Marichalar's family estate in Soria when he accidentally pulled the trigger, investigators said.
Marichalar was fined because Spanish law prohibits children from handling guns, ThinkSpain reported.
