(AP) A Pennsylvania man who apparently shot a young relative after mistaking her costume for a skunk has been ordered to stand trial on charges of assault and reckless endangerment.


Thomas Grant waived a preliminary hearing before a Beaver County magistrate on Thursday.


Police say the girl was in a black costume with a white feather or tassel on her hat during a Halloween party at a New Sewickley home on Oct. 20.


The Beaver County Times reports investigators said the girl was lying face down and motionless during a game of hide-and-seek when she was shot.


Grant's attorney called the shooting a tragic accident and says his client's first concern is the girl's well-being. He says he'll ask to have the charges dismissed.


The girl is recovering from her wounds.
