Colleen McKernan: Father Speaks Out--Part 1

Part 1--Colleen McKernan is serving a 7-year sentence for manslaughter after shooting her husband Rob during an argument on New Years Eve, 2014. Originally charged with murder, McKernan went to trial twice in 2016 in Canton, Ohio. Both times, jurors deadlocked. She claimed she shot her husband of eight months in self-defense. On the eve of her third trial, McKernan accepted a plea deal to manslaughter. In this interview, conducted in mid-April 2017, Colleen's father, Gary Owen, describes his daughter, her relationship to Rob, and living through two trials.
