The actor who played little Michael Hughley on the '90s sitcom The Hughleys has been charged with murder and gang activity.

Mediatakeout.com broke the story and RadarOnline.com has independently confirmed the tragic case.

Child star Dee Jay Daniels - real name Dorjan Lyndell Daniels -  is currently behind bars in San Joaquin County Jail awaiting trial on the horrific charges.

They stem from an incident in August 2011 when Daniels, along with two other men, was accused of stabbing to death 26-year-old John Joseph outside Chitivah's nightclub in Stockton, Ca.

The 23-year-old former star is believed to be a member of the notorious Bloods gang and his inmate details reveal he is being held without bail.

The charges listed are two counts of street terrorism, one of willful, deliberate, premeditated murder and attempted murder: premeditated.

If convicted he faces life behind bars.

His next hearing is June 7 when jury trial is expected to be confirmed.

As well as playing the quick witted kid in The Hughleys he also appeared in several shows including In the House, Coach, The Wayans Bros, Grace Under Fire and Cold Case.
