TROY - A Troy teen accused of shooting her father to death has been arraigned again on her murder indictment.

Trinity Copeland's charges were dropped in May because of an error in the grand jury process.

The case went to another grand jury.

Investigators say she shot her 47-year-old father Harlan Copeland in the apartment the two shared on Seventh Avenue. It apparently happened after an argument over a $154 credit card charge.

Copeland is now in the Rensselaer County Jail without bail.
