(MIDLAND, IN) - A second person has been charged in the death of 14-month-old Travis Bohannon.

Tanya Salesman-McIntyre, the girlfriend of Travis' father Ronald Bohannon, was charged yesterday afternoon with two counts of false informing, one count of obstruction of justice, and one count of assisting a criminal.

Tanya McIntyre falsely informed police that the boy had been hit by a stray bullet when she dialed 911.

29-year-old Ronald Bohannon told police he was pushing his son in a stroller when his son was hit by a stray bullet.

The Sheriff's Department said Bohannon later admitted making up the story and that the gun discharged accidentally.
