HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – The case against a Henrico woman, accused in the fatal shooting of her friend, is moving forward.

On Thursday, a judge certified the involuntary manslaughter charge against 21-year-old Sharday Pleasants. Police say, back in August, Pleasants and 19-year-old Sam Clarke III were playing "Russian roulette", when the gun went off.
