DETROIT (AP) - Three men charged in the shooting of a 2-year-old Detroit girl now face murder charges after she died last weekend.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Tuesday the three are charged in the death of Makanzee Oldham, who died Sunday. She was shot last Wednesday while in a car with her father after a fight erupted and someone poured juice on a woman getting ready for prom.

Thirty-year-old Cleveland Smelley is accused of firing the shot that killed Makanzee. He and two other men are also charged with attempted murder because there were others in the car.

They’re in jail and will return to court on June 9.
