HARTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- A 40-year-old man is charged with murder after a toddler was killed in a yard in Hartsville and the girl's mother is accused of lying to police.

Authorities said Madison Dolford was shot after an argument between two adults Monday afternoon. Police haven't determined if she was targeted by the shooter or was hit by a stray bullet.

Investigators charged Timothy Sanders with murder on Tuesday and charged the child's mother, 23-year-old April Dixon, with misprision of a felony, accusing her of lying to police about the shooting. It wasn't known if either suspect had an attorney.

Authorities have released few details about the shooting and haven't said if there is any relationship between Sanders and Dixon.
