KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two teenagers are charged in what authorities say was an accidental shooting death of a Kansas City woman.

Jackson County authorities say 40-year-old Tina Castor died Tuesday after she was shot while sitting in a friend’s car.

The two suspects, both 16, were playing with guns in the back seat of the car. Investigators say one of the teenagers, a relative of Castro’s, touched a trigger of a gun and fired a single shot into her back. She died at the scene.
