The actor who played little Michael Hughley on the sitcom The Hughleys has been charged with murder.
The charge stems from an August 2011 incident, but news of the child star’s involvement was only made public after a recent report on the gossip website MediaTakeOut.com .
The child actor, whose real name is Dorjan Lyndell Daniels, and two other men were accused of stabbing 26-year-old John Joseph to death outside Chitivah’s nightclub in Stockton, California.
According to San Joaquin County Jail records, Daniels is charged with one count of willful, deliberate premeditated murder and one count attempted murder, premeditated.
He is also charged with two counts of street terrorism.
The now 23-year-old former sitcom star is believed to be a member of the infamous Bloods gang.
Daniels is being held without bail. His next scheduled court appearance is June 7, 2012.
