SANILAC COUNTY, MI (AP) -

A Sanilac County man has pleaded guilty to charges related to the accidental fatal shooting of an 11-year-old boy who was an overnight guest at his home.  

The Times Herald reports the man made the plea Monday to firearm possession by a felon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was scheduled for trial May 15.  

The man's 12-year-old son pleaded guilty last month to reckless discharge of a firearm and a written sentence is expected this week.  

Tyler Dunn died Nov. 23 from a rifle shot in Marlette Township, about 65 miles north of Detroit.

Authorities say no adult was home.  

The court will decide if the boy is sentenced as an adult or a juvenile.

The Associated Press isn't naming the father and son.
