Vt. man pleads not guilty to charge he killed son

St. Johnsbury, Vt. (AP) – A Vermont man charged with killing his
son on the first day of spring turkey hunting season has pleaded
not guilty.

Forty-five-year-old Kevin Kadamus, of Lyndon, entered his plea
Monday to a manslaughter charge.

Kadamus’ brother-in-law Tom Loftus says Kevin will suffer for
the rest of his life for accidentally shooting his 17-year-old son,
Jacob, on May 1. The family calls it a hunting tragedy.

Police say it is a tragedy, but the law doesn’t provide
exemptions when family members are involved. They say the father
violated an important rule of hunting by not identifying his target
before shooting.

The St. Johnsbury courtroom was packed with about 150 supporters
of Kadamus.
