(WBIR-Alcoa, Tn) The parents of a baby girl who was shot and killed while they were arguing have pleaded guilty in their daughter's death.

Angela Major and Ken Mason both entered pleas on information to reckless homicide and unlawful possession of a weapon in connection to the June shooting death of their 6-month-old daughter, Kelsey.

According to court documents, a witness in the house at the time of the shooting overheard the child's parents fighting over a handgun while the baby girl sat at their feet. The witness said she heard a struggle, then the gun went off, striking the father in the hand and hitting the baby girl in the head.
