CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - As a 50-year-old Clarksville man was being laid to rest in a cemetery, his 17-year-old son was in a juvenile courtroom charged in his father's fatal shooting.

Alexander Hart was arraigned Monday, along with another juvenile who was not identified, on charges of murder in the death of Hart's father, Gilbert Hart, who was found with a gunshot wound to his head at his home last week.

The Leaf-Chronicle reported that Hart's 18-year-old daughter, Rebecca Hart, is scheduled to be arraigned on a charge of first-degree murder later this week.

Gilbert Hart was buried Monday at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-West.

Assistant District Attorney Bill Cloud said in the hearing that he plans to ask that the youths be transferred to the adult criminal court system.
