FOND DU LAC, Wis. -

The Campbellsport teen accused of shooting an arrow that struck a 7-year-old girl in the back is expected to enter a plea.

Casey H. Bennett, 17, is scheduled for a plea and sentencing hearing Monday in adult court. He's charged with a felony count of second-degree reckless injury and a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer.

Bennett told authorities he was shooting at squirrels in May when a stray arrow hit 7-year-old Aryanna Schneeberg in the back. Prosecutors said the teen initially denied shooting the arrow, and that he didn't come forward because he was scared.

Schneeberg was playing outside her Campbellsport home. Doctors said she was lucky to be alive after the arrow sliced through her spleen, stomach, diaphragm and lung before stopping at her liver.
