Prosecutors say Emmanuel McClendon junior fired 10 shots from an AK-47 assault rifle into the home of Christopher and Laura Hitchings last Friday night. One of the bullets hit and killed their eight-year-old daughter Karissa.

McClendon turned himself in the next day and told investigators he was sorry, but has made no other statements.
