TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The man who was accused of throwing his 3-week-old child at its mother during an argument could have those charges dropped.

Kenneth Hunter, 30, was facing charges of injury to a child and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after he was accused of throwing the infant, then pointing a gun at its mother. It turns out, that never happened.

Police now say the mother, Jessica Jackson, lied about what happened, and she has now been charged with injury to a child, and filing a false report.

Hunter's sister, Amaka Ogugua, is being charged with filing a false report.
