GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - A man facing child abuse charges after a 3-year-old boy allegedly shot his 8-month-old sister in a New Mexico motel has been arrested again.

The Gallup Independent reports authorities say Tyrell Bitsilly recently tested positive for methamphetamine and was ordered to be held until his case is resolved.

State District Court Judge Robert Aragon ordered Bitsilly detained for violating his release conditions.

The 21-year-old Bitsilly was arrested in December after police found his girlfriend’s infant daughter with a gunshot wound to the face. Bitsilly and 18-year-old Shayanne Nelson told police they were showering at a Gallup motel when the boy found the gun and accidentally shot his sister.

Bitsilly was released last month after Aragon reduced his bond to $10,000 cash.
