KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knox County parents accused of shooting and killing their baby daughter during a dispute waived their right to a preliminary hearing in court Monday.

Angela Major and Ken Mason are both charged with reckless homicide in the incident from late last month.

The sheriff's office says the two were struggling over a handgun when their six-month-old daughter, Kelsey, was shot.

The case is now headed for the grand jury.

The prosecution says they plan to push for felony murder charges against them as a result of child neglect.

Earlier this month, Mason's bond was reduced from $1 million to $200,000.

Major's bond remains at $1 million.
