WASHINGTON — Two people have been indicted in connection with a fatal accident last week at an in-home day care in Virginia.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said a 4-year-old boy found a gun and accidentally shot himself May 15. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say there were other children in the home at the time of the shooting.

The man and woman who live there have been indicted on charges including child abuse or neglect.

Heather Massey, 27, is charged with five felony counts, while 25-year-old Nicholas Stoia faces one felony count.

Stoia is a Stafford County Sheriff’s Office recruit, and a spokeswoman told WTOP he is now on administrative leave.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office says Stoia was not home at the time of the accident, and the gun involved was not a service weapon.
