Dorjan Lyndell Daniel

Dee Jay Daniels, 23, the kid who played D.L. Hughley’s son “Michael” on the ’90s ABC-TV sitcom The Hughleys,” has been slapped with a murder rap in addition to gang activities. 

The former child actor, whose actual name is Dorjan Lyndell Daniels, has been accused with two other cohorts — Marcus McCliman, 26, and Djuane Nunely, 26 — of fatally stabbing John Joseph, 26, outside a Stockton, California nightclub in August of last year. An unidentified woman was also hurt during the incident but recovered from her injuries.

Daniels, who is suspected of being a member of the Bloods, is facing a life sentence if convicted.
