A toddler enthralled by Christmas tree lights tripped an anti-crime motion detector in his living room and was shot to death by his stepmother, who had mistaken the 3-year-old for a burglar, police said. Jonathan Hicks' death was ruled an accident, and police planned no charges against his stepmother, whom they refused to identify. On Saturday night, the woman grabbed a .38-caliber handgun and fired when she saw movement. Jonathan was shot in the head as he stood inches from the Christmas tree.
