The parents of a 2-year-old Horry County boy who accidentally shot himself on Christmas Day have been indicted on a charge connected to the boy's sister.
In February, Rondell Smith and Lakisha Brown were charged with Illegal Conduct toward a Child after their infant daughter tested positive for cocaine and marijuana.
The indictment was handed down this week.
Rondell Smith faces a charge of Involuntary Manslaughter.
On December 25, 2012, Smith's two-year-old son, Sincere, found a gun on a table in the family's home and shot himself in the chest.
He died on the way to the hospital.
The girl has been placed in protective custody.
