Jon Meyer GRANTS PASS, Ore. – A court room in Grants Pass is packed today as a Grants Pass man accused of killing a 5-year-old girl will learn his fate.

Jon Meyer, Jr. is in court right now expecting to be sentenced. He was arrested after police say he fired the weapon that killed 5-year-old Alyssa Bobbit earlier this year.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Meyer was using the rifle as a makeshift crutch to help him get off the couch. The gun then fired several rounds through the ceiling, hitting and killing Bobbit.
