Detroit (WJBK - Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Demetrius Peals, 22, and Kinesha Boyd, 20, both of Detroit in connection with the fatal shooting of Boyd's three-year-old son Kyrei Boyd.
On December 6, at 7:20 p.m. medics were called to an apartment shared by Boyd and Peals to transport Boyd's son for treatment for a gunshot wound to the face.
Kyrei was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police believe that Peal left a loaded firearm accessible to Kyrei while the child was in his care and a resident of his household.
It is also believed that Peal knowingly and intentionally tampered with the evidence.
It is alleged that Boyd failed to provide a safe environment for her child and permitted Peals, a person known to carry a gun in the home to have access to her child.
Peals is facing a number of charges including involuntary manslaughter and second degree child abuse.
The investigation for this is ongoing.
