DOVER, Del. (AP) — Three Dover day care workers charged with encouraging two 3-year-old boys in their care to fight each other have waived their rights to preliminary hearings.

The three women were charged this week with assault and other offenses after Dover police obtained a cell phone video of the March 6 incident. Officials suspended the license of Hands of Our Future day care center the same day.

Tiana Harris, 19, of Dover, Estefania Myers, 21, of Felton, and Lisa Parker, 47, all waived preliminary hearings Friday. Myers and Parker refused to comment before leaving the Kent County courthouse. An attorney for Harris also declined to comment.

The women posted bonds of $10,000 each after being charged with felony assault and conspiracy, and several misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
