Authorities said Mannie was the live-in boyfriend of Darryn’s mother. He is not the biological father of the Darryn.

The Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office also told TV5 that there is a possibility the mother could face criminal charges as well.

Mannie was released from prison in February after serving time for attempted unarmed robbery.
