better bay area moving forward finding solutions, this is abc 7 news. the latest now on the death of a three-year-old girl after an exorcism attempt two of the suspects went before judge in santa clara county today prosecutors want those men in court together with a girl's mother who was arrested earlier this year abc 7 news reporter. zach fuentes has the story. the three-year-old known as a really doe died last september court documents show that the girl's mother and uncle drove to a san jose church believing she was possessed by a demon the child died in their attempts to get the so-called spirit out o'reilly's mother, claudia hernandez was arrested in january and just last week o'reilly's uncle renee hernandez. santos was arrested and her
6:30 pm
grandfather renee triggeros hernandez who met them at the church the night of a release death the thing that allowed us to arrest renee hernandez and renee hernandez santos. is the release of the medical examiner's report to our office and to the san jose police department, which provided more detail as to the injury to rally dough aureli's grandfather and her uncle went before a judge today to review their bail status both of their attorneys withdrew their emotions so that they'd have more time to look at the prosecutor's evidence for now the two will stay in custody with no bail family members of the two men were in court today, but turn down our request to speak with them prosecutor rebecca. why says that are really don't endured the abuse that led to her. for 12 hours. she says none of the three suspects call 911 until two hours after o'reilly died and only after a family member recommended it in the statement of fact, we outlined what the evidence shows each individual's role was but they are all looking at the same charge, which is child abuse causing death. they face 25 years to life in prison the san jose church at the center of all of it is also part of another shocking case
6:31 pm
still being investigated. it's where the family of three month old brand and quayar met the woman suspected of orchestrating his kidnapping. why is this prosecuting both cases and says each are being looked at separately for now her. the consolidate the three suspects connected with the reliedos depth to move prosecution along quicker on june 13th. we're going to ask to add the renee hernandez and renee hernandez santos case with the claudia hernandez case in santa clara county zach fuentes abc 7 news. the white man accused of killing 10 black people at a buffalo supermarket last weekend specifically targeting them because of their race was officially indicted today on a charge of first degree murder. he's due back in court next month. the fbi is touring over his social media posts which appeared to suggest the self-professed white supremacist was radicalized online during the early stages of the pandemic congressional leaders today vowing to combat hate crimes and activists are confident that this event will be a catalyst for change.

so let's stop making excuses for hate. let's stop making excuses for white supremacy. it is wrong. it is poisonous, but this is not a question of mental health. it's a question of the nation's health if we keep letting this happen. day california senator diane feinstein introduced to bill called the age 21 act which would raise the minimum age to purchase assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines from 18 to 21. today the cdc started recommending children as young as five receive a booster dose of pfizer's covid-19 vaccine kids will have to wait at least five months after their second dose abc 7 news special correspondent, dr. elope patel says parents can rest assure. the shot is safe. i hope that parents out there when they see this approval. they realize that there is a debate in the advisory committee of immunization practices and they thoroughly bet all the data openly say that they wouldn't approve any vaccine unless they would give it to their own kids.
6:33 pm
eligible kids can start getting booster shots tomorrow us senate has unanimously approved a bill to make it easier for families to buy baby formula during the current shortage the access to baby formula act which already passed the house allows people to redeem the government's wic vouchers for any brand of formula. the act now goes to president biden for his signature. it's rare that we have unity in the senate on important measures and i wish we had more this is one of these important issues and i'm glad we're acting with one voice. a second bill to address the baby formula shortage past the house on wednesday but faces an uncertain future in the senate that measure would provide 28 million dollars in emergency funding to help boost formula production. we want to turn your attention now to the extremely confusing future of sports betting in california two propositions might end up on your november ballot, but it will be a battle to get there rob mcmillan from our sister station in los angeles has details we're
6:34 pm
already seeing plenty of ads online and on tv about measures on the november ballot that would legalize sports wagering in california. but so far we're not seeing as many ads for a particular measure as much as we are against them. it's bad for tribes and all californians. and we saw a prime example of that at a news conference in commerce this morning. vote. no, please vote. no the measure these folks are worried about is called the california sports wagering regulation and unlawful gambling enforcement act, which is being pushed by many of the indian casinos. it would legalize sports betting on their casino property, but it would also open the door for tribes to go after casinos who are flouting the law and this group worries. it will give indian casinos open season to go after card rooms. places like the commerce casino. it has a pacific provision that would allow for lawsuits against car rooms and even customers in the car room as a way to close them down and if these casinos were to be shut down it could be
6:35 pm
devastating to some of these communities 46% of our general fund revenue comes from our casino, but there's another gambling measure voters might see on the ballot which would legalize online and mobile sports wagering, but it doesn't mention any that in the title instead. it's called the california solutions to homelessness and mental health support act. rob stutzman is a spokesperson for a group called tribal sovereignty and safe gaming. he is opposed to that measure. yes. they are promising money to fight. homelessness and if you look at the fine print 90% of these dollars go out of state and then the pennies that remain actually get chopped up through some other loopholes. essentially you're looking at maybe a maybe a 3% bump to the amount of money the state currently spends on homelessness bottom line one of the initiatives would make online sports wagering in california legal the other would make it legal only. tribal casinos and racetracks
