ATLANTA – A judge has ordered a prominent Atlanta lawyer carrying a single display, and turn over his passport after the shooting death of his wife.
Claud “Tex” McIver is charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/2hjjKAl ) that a judge Thursday ordered him to be freed on bond.
McIver’s lawyer has not yet responded to requests for comment, but McIver has insisted the shooting was an accident.
The Atlanta police have said McIver was riding in a back seat of an SUV at the end of Sept. 25, when a gun he was holding fired and the bullet hit his wife, a 63-year-old Diane McIver, who is in the passenger seat. She died in a hospital.
Diane McIver was president of the USA. Enterprises Inc., the parent company, Corey Airport Services.
