TROY, N.Y. -- The Troy teenager who is accused of killing her father was indicted on second degree murder, and first degree manslaughter charges on Friday.

According to police, they were called 3022 7th Avenue in July 2012 and found Harlan Copeland dead inside his apartment. They said his daughter, Trinity Copeland, admitted to shooting him because he told her to.

Friday is the second time she has been indicted for the crime. Earlier this year, a judge dropped a grand jury indictment on murder charges.

The judge ruled the Rensselaer County District Attorney's office failed to properly instruct the grand jury about the law of self defense.

After hearing arguments, Judge Andrew Ceresia allowed prosecutors to present the case to a second grand jury.
