MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Two cousins have been indicted in the death of a 2-year-old girl who was shot while riding in a car with her mother.

Tylan McCray, 21, was indicted Wednesday on first-degree murder and other charges in Laylah Washington’s death.

Laylah was killed in Memphis in June 2017. Police have said she was riding in a car with her mother, who had been in an argument with four men in a black four-door sedan.

Police said one of the passengers opened fire, and Laylah was hit in the head. She died two days later.

McCray’s cousin, 20-year-old Brandon McCray, is charged as an accessory. Authorities said he was driving the sedan. Online court records do not show if either man has a lawyer.
