PENSACOLA, Fla. (WALA) - Two men connected to the death of a Pensacola toddler are now charged with murder.
On Tuesday, a Grand Jury indicted Dwayne Pinestraw, 20, and Shaquill Besst ,18, for the death of 22-month-old Tyquarius Moultrie.
Moultrie was accidentally killed in a shooting back in July.
Pensacola police said Pinestraw and Besst were actually trying to kill the toddler's uncle, 21-year-old Vincent Dennis.
Now the pair each face three charges: shooting at a building, first-degree attempted murder and first-degree murder.
We now know how this tragedy all started.
On July 15, 22-month-old Tyquarius Moultrie was sitting inside his living room with his uncle at Pensacola Village Apartments.
Police said on that day, 20-year-old Dwayne Pinestraw and 18-year-old Shaquill Besst approached the window and tried to shoot Dennis. Instead, they killed Moultrie.
And the state Attorney's office said the two could face the death penalty.
"We have, in this case, a victim that appears to be totally and completely innocent." State Attorney Bill Eddins said.
"God has taken care of everything for me. Like I tell people, this is not my battle. This is the Lord's battle." said Moultrie's grandmother, Toni Washington.
Police said the shooting was payback for something that happened earlier that day.
Pensacola police said Besst and Pinestraw sat in a car at a gas station just down the street, when they were robbed at gunpoint.
Besst told investigators that Vincent Dennis was one of the robbers, and police said that's why the pair took a gun to the apartment.
Moultrie's grandmother blames Dennis for her grandson's death.
"In my heart, in my eyes, [Vincent is] just as guilty. I don't want anything to do with him." Washington said
Now Washington trusts the state and God.
"I put it in the Lord's hands because I know no one can fight this battle better than him," she said.
Police said at some point, Dennis could be charged for the crime at the gas station.
The state attorney said now that the indictments have been served against Pinestraw and Besst, the defense will be given time to prepare its case.
We can expect a trial sometime later this year.
