MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee woman is charged in the shooting death of her 2-year-old daughter last week.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney's office on Sunday charged Jasmine Daniels, 22, with first-degree reckless homicide.
Zymeiia Stevens was fatally shot Tuesday night.
According to the criminal complaint, Daniels gave conflicting statements to investigators but later acknowledged she "accidentally did it" while "playing around with her gun in the basement when the gun went off and shot" the child, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
An autopsy found the child suffered four gunshot wounds caused by a single bullet, according to the complaint. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner has ruled the death a homicide.
Daniels is scheduled to make her initial court appearance on Aug. 4. Her public defender did not immediately reply to a request for comment Sunday.
