Ohio Couple Face Additional Charges in Child's Shooting
Local news reports
A Hamilton County grand jury adds more charges to a couple charged in connection with the accidental shooting of a toddler in Avondale.
Cordero Warren and Ebony McDavis told police that McDavis' 3-year-old daughter was shot during random gunfire outside of their Tacoma Avenue home on December 17. Police determined the little girl was shot inside their home with a gun belonging to Warren, a gun that he is not allowed to have.
Prosecutor Joe Deters says the little girl is still in the hospital. The grand jury added child endangering, assault and tampering with evidence to the falsification charge McDavis already faces. Cordero was originally charged with tampering with evidence.
He now is charged with child endangering, assault, negligent assault, falsification and a gun charge. If he's convicted of all charges he could face 17 years in prison. Police say they still don't know the location of the gun that injured the little girl.
In a release, Deters said, “It remains a mystery to me how a mother can constantly lie in order to protect a boyfriend when her baby has been shot. Prison is where both of these people should be residing.”
Now, these guys really know how to pay for their negligence. First, be black, second, lie to the cops, and third, get rid of the gun.
