ST. LOUIS (KTVI) -- Several twists in ongoing Fox Files reporting about a shooting death reported as an accident.

Victoria Haungs made her first appearance in court Friday and dropped a bombshell that seemed to catch everyone off guard.

Reco Coley, 24, died last July when Haungs shot him in Bellefontaine Neighbors. Haungs told police it was an accident.

Surveillance video from a nearby home shows Reco Coley sprinting out of a house where he had been shot. The 24-year-old collapses in the street. A woman follows 44 seconds later.

A grand jury indicted 26-year-old Haungs for second-degree involuntary manslaughter in November. This week, she was picked up by law enforcement in St. Francois County.

Haungs asked for a bond reduction in court Friday. The State was asking for a $50,000 cash-only bond. Haungs said she was 12 weeks pregnant.

The judge listened to Jamie Coley’s concerns and denied the defendant’s bond reduction request.
