A Montgomery County grand jury also indicted the father Wednesday on charges including endangering children and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and having weapons under disability. Court records don't indicate whether 34-year-old Jamahl Evans has an attorney.

The county prosecutor says Evans has a criminal record and was legally barred from possessing a firearm.

The toddler killed June 4 in Harrison Township was J'veontae Johnston.

Evan's 13-year-old son is charged with reckless homicide in his brother's death. He had a denial plea entered on his behalf during a juvenile court hearing June 5.
