A Clackamas County man accused of accidentally shooting his niece in the face is now facing charges.

Luke Bowman, 25, has pleaded not guilty to assault with a firearm and assault charges. Deputies say he was cleaning a gun Christmas morning when he pulled the trigger and it fired.

The bullet went through a coffee cup and into the 2-year-old girl's cheek and out the other side. The girl survived.

Bowman is expected to go to trial in October.
