Couple Charged With Child Abuse After Toddler Shot

DENVER (CBS4)– A man and a woman have been charged in connection with the accidental shooting of their 17-month-old child.

Iesha Paris has been charged with child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury and misdemeanor child abuse.

Darryl Hunter, 26, has been charged with accessory to child abuse and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

The charges allege that Paris, 21, unreasonably placed a 17-month-old and a two-and-a-half old in a situation that posed a threat of serious bodily injury by leaving them in a room where there was access to a gun.

Paris and Hunter have been released from custody on $50,000 bond each. They are scheduled to appear in Denver County Court for a second advisement on August 10.
