“Hughleys” Child Star Arrested for Murder and Suspected Gang Activity
Former child star Dee Jay Daniels (real name Dorjan Lyndell Daniels) — who you might remember as little Michael Hughley on “The Hughleys” — was recently arrested in California for marijuana possession, premeditated murder and gang activity charges in connection with a fatal stabbing.
According to E! News, the 23-year-old is among three men who are accused of stabbing a 26-year-old man named John Joseph outside a nightclub in Stockton, California in August 2011.
Daniels — who in addition to the Hughleys (which aired on TV from 1998-2002), was also featured on “Cold Case,” “Coach,” “ER,” “The Wayans Bros,” “Family Matters” and more — is currently being held in San Joaquin County jail with no bail.
If convicted, he could face life in prison.
