The cash bond was set at $ 100,000 on Sunday for Milwaukee’s mother, who is charged with first degree murder for the murder of her two-year-old daughter. Prosecutors said she confessed to “accidentally” shooting her daughter after initially offering multiple accounts of what happened – she even blamed her son.
According to a criminal complaint, witnesses heard a bullet, at about 7:30 pm. She saw Yasmine Daniels, 22, running away with her child, who was shot. The first responders were called in, and witnesses assisted in performing CPR on the victim before paramedics arrived. Paramedics took life-saving measures, but the death of a two-year-old girl on her way to Wisconsin for children was announced.
Another witness said that they saw a black man exiting the headquarters after shooting with a pistol in his waist, and entered a four-door silver car.
At the hospital, the police interviewed Daniels. This is where the prosecutors said that they presented several stories of what had happened before the shooting.
The police reportedly told her two children – a 3-year-old son and a two-year-old daughter – in her apartment in the basement when she went out and heard “three to four gunshots.”
After confronting her again, Daniels claimed that she was in the basement with the two children and a pistol she had for protection lay on a table. She said she looked away for two minutes, and heard a shot. Then I looked and watched 3-year-old crying, two-year-old bleeding. According to the complaint, she said, “He was not intended to do so,” blaming her 3-year-old son for the shooting.
According to Daniels, only three were in the basement at the time of the accident.
One of the investigators asked for approval to search the dwelling for the pistol. Prosecutors said Daniels had refused and said the gun would not be inside the residence.
This is the time when Daniels has been held by the police for obstruction, according to the complaint.
According to the complaint, the search for a residence found the following items:
– Black digital scale
– A package of suspected cocaine held in a transparent bag on the floor with a sofa
– A large ammunition sergeant box with four unexploded cartridges
– Multiple cell phones
– Black Glock Magazine (loaded with 9mm cartridges of various brands)
– A plastic bag containing three nickel cartridges of 9 mm nickel
Bottle of cereal containing suspected cocaine
– Copper bullet shot in drywall
During an additional interrogation, prosecutors said Daniels provided a third account of what happened on the night of the shooting: she claimed that a week before the shooting, she found a handgun in the garden and admitted that she had not checked the gun to see if there was a tour of the room.
On the day of the shooting, Daniels decided that she would get rid of the gun. She said she put the pistol on the sofa, with the two-year-old sitting on the opposite end. She said she went away for a few minutes and heard a shot. Then I turned around and saw the 3-year-old stand next to the gun, and the two-year-old bleeding. She said she caught the second child and ran upstairs, according to the complaint.
During the interview, prosecutors said Daniels remained uncooperative, refusing to identify other individuals who had lived at the top of the dwelling. Daniels was determined to have only three people in the basement.
In a fourth interview, prosecutors said Daniels had confessed that she had once again lied to the police.
She admitted that her 3-year-old did not shoot her two-year-old. She claimed that she was in the basement when an unknown black male entered the basement and sat on the sofa. According to the complaint, the unknown black male began cleaning a gun. Although her children playing in the same room while cleaning the gun – it was reported that Daniels took no action, claiming that she was not bothered by the presence of an unknown person inside her house, cleaning a pistol, while her children were playing in the same room.
Five minutes later, I heard a shot, according to the complaint.
The unknown man allegedly fled the property and her two-year-old son was lying on the ground. The complaint said that Daniels had confessed to having other people inside the top of the residence, but he refused to identify these people.
The complaint said that investigators recovered the surveillance video from outside the house during the time frame of the shooting, which did not show an unknown black male entering or leaving the building around the time of the shooting.
Daniels also denied that her boyfriend and the father of her children were at the residence at the time.
Prosecutors said Daniels continued to refuse to provide information about other male individuals inside the residence, even after photographs from the surveillance video appeared.
