      Widow Files $1.5 M Lawsuit Against Man Who Killed Her Husband in Hunting Accident

      Pittsylvania Co.,VA-- A civil suit has been filed against a Pittsylvania County man convicted of shooting his neighbor in an hunting accident.

      Harry Hale Jr. was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but had 9 years suspended last year after shooting 57-year-old Richie Pope back in 2011.

      Now Pope's widow, Phyllis Pope, is suing Hale for $1.5 million.

      According to the lawsuit, Pope wants a jury trial. She states Hale was careless, reckless, and negligent when he used his firearm that day.

      Phyllis Pope said she suffered great financial loss and mental stress.
