Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News
Marquell Buie, 22, is behind bars after being charged with child abuse resulting in serious injury.
According to investigators, Buie was at home with a friend smoking marijuana in April when the friend’s toddler got a hold of Buie’s gun and shot his 17-month old daughter Ma’Laya in the face.
Buie also appeared in front of a judge today over a robbery charge after he assaulted a woman and took her phone over the weekend.
Bond was set at $25,000 for each charge.
