Man accused of shooting girlfriend charged by grand jury

Posted: Updated:

NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. - The case against a North Greenbush man accused in the shooting death of his girlfriend is deepening.

Last December, 57-year-old Rory Poulin allegedly shot Margaret Jordan in the head.

In addition to a murder and weapons charge, a grand jury has how slapped Poulin with manslaughter charges and criminally negligent homicide. The grand jury did so after seeing statements Poulin made to police.

He said the two had been arguing for hours, and when he pointed a shotgun at Jordan's head, she told him to "go ahead and pull the trigger."     

Poulin told police he did just that - not expecting the gun to go off.
