DETROIT (AP) _ A man was charged Saturday with fatally shooting his 20-month-old daughter and wounding his 3-year-old son after arguing with the children’s mother.

Police said Antonio Duane Ware, 24, shot his daughter, Amari Ware, and his son, Andreyus Ware, late Thursday at the mother’s home. Andreyus was treated for a grazing wound to one ear and released.

The children’s mother, Victoria Seldon, 24, and sister, 4-year-old Alexis, were not injured.

Investigators were told that Seldon and Ware argued over money, and that Seldon also was ending her relationship with Ware, police Cmdr. Dennis Richardson said.

Ware was arraigned Saturday on charges of first-degree murder and felony murder; prosecutors said he also would be charged with three counts of assault with intent to murder.

He could face life in prison if convicted of any of the murder or assault charges.
