Having been privy to a few jailhouse relationships gone bad, I don't buy the accidental discharge for a second. For starters, who cleans a loaded gun? #2, Glocks, or pretty much any gun, doesn't "accidentally discharge". You must pull the trigger. No, my guess this will come out that it was no accident.
