The boy ended up in Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest with a .22-caliber bullet lodged in his skull behind his ear. Niedosik ended up in Monroe County Prison on $250,000 bail, charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
A woman identifying herself as Jeanie Niedosik, James' ex-wife and the boy's mother, answered the phone at the Jackson Township residence Saturday evening.
''One's in jail, one's in the hospital,'' she said. ''I won't know exactly what happened until I talk to [my son]. He's incoherent yet; they have him heavily sedated.''
She said she wasn't present for the shooting but doesn't believe it unfolded the way police described.
''He did the shooting but it was an accidental thing that took place,'' she said.
