Man Arrested in Daughter's Day Care Death
Updated 9:57 PM ET October 9, 2004
DETROIT (AP) - The father of a 3-year-old who was beaten to death during an attack on her day care center was arrested Saturday, a day after he was named as the suspect in the rampage that also left two women hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
An arrest warrant was signed Friday for Bernard Kelly, 37, of Detroit, and he was taken into custody at a home Saturday evening, Detroit Police Officer Jeremy Aguayo said. Police did not release the charges against Kelly.
The warrant came after a woman shot during the Sept. 28 attack that killed Stefanie Belue named him as the assailant, Officer Glen Woods said.
Police initially reported that the 3-year-old had been shot to death, but later said she was fatally beaten during the attack.
Annette Rice, 41, the day care's operator, and Sherita Griggs, Rice's 22-year-old niece, were shot and critically wounded at the in-home day care. Both women remained hospitalized Saturday. Woods would not say which one identified Kelly as the assailant.
Griggs' 4-month-old son suffered a head injury when she dropped him during the attack. Two other children in the house were unharmed.
