US specialists declared Thursday they will bring charges against a man who left a handgun in a condo, prompting a mischance in which a baby shot and killed her seven-year-old cousin.
The shooting happened June 6 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Anthony Sanders, a 27-year-old sentenced criminal,was to go before a judge Thursday to be accused of weapon possession, which is illicit for individuals with a criminal record like his. He had done jail time for kidnapping.
The new charge could bring a 10-year imprison term on the off chance that he is indicted.
Sanders was captured Wednesday. He had spent the night in the Nashville apartment and left the next morning, abandoning gun behind.
No less than five children were there at the time.
A two-year-old kid shot his seven-year-old cousin Harmony Warfield in the head and killed her.
Such heartbreaking mischances are not uncommon in the United States, a nation with more than 300 million guns.
In 2014, a two-year-old child killed her mom in a general store in Idaho by getting the weapon in her purse.
