Michelle Smith, the grandmother of Anakin McKie, a 4-month-old baby who died in a February homicide, says Daniel McKie is at fault for the baby's death.

Daniel McKie was arrested Thursday and booked on a first-degree murder charge. During a jailhouse interview with 23ABC Thursday night, Daniel McKie said the baby's death was an accident after he tripped on the baby's breathing equipment while holding the baby.
