Man accused of killing daughter enters not guilty plea


A Whitney man accused of shooting and killing his daughter, entered a not guilty plea Monday morning.

Edwin Odell Collins Jr. was indicted on a murder charge by a Hill County Grand Jury on August 23. Collins is accused of killing his daughter in the summer of 2012.

According to an affidavit, Collins gathered his kids into a mini van last year because he thought someone was after him. He said people with flashlights were chasing him in a field north of Whitney and he was trying to keep his kids safe.

When his daughter screamed, Collins says he accidentally shot her in the back, which killed her.

The murder trial is set to begin December 2.
