The 26-year-old man accused of accidentally shooting his one-year-old daughter in the chest earlier this week appeared in court Thursday.

Kevin Sayre is said to have shot his daughter Priscilla while he was field stripping a weapon inside a Tullahoma apartment Sunday night.

During his initial appearance, Sayre was appointed a public defender after he told the judge he did not have money for an attorney.

Sayre is charged with aggravated assault.

Baby Priscilla remains hospitalized. She is expected to survive.
