Couple charged when teen shot himself in the head with .44-caliber revolver

MARION — Detective Paul Alkire of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged 50-year-old Kimberly Cable and 46-year-old Roger Dale Cable, both of 86 Reid St. in Marion, with involuntary manslaughter and failure to store a firearm to protect a minor.

In the early morning hours of Friday, July 27, Kyle Storm Lee, 16, of 97 Dusty Arch Drive in Marion, was at the Cable home on Reid Street, visiting with the couple’s son.

Lee was playing around with a .44-caliber revolver that belonged to the Cables and fatally shot himself in the head.

“There were numerous guns in the house,” said Alkire. “The juveniles had easy access to the guns, which was negligent on the suspects’ part, and that led to a death.”

Other than the access to the firearm, no additional foul play is suspected in Lee’s death.
