QUITMAN (KYTX)- Thomas Liles has been released from jail after his bond was reduced from $1 million to $20,000 Wednesday morning.

Liles is one of the men accused of injury to a child in the deaths of two Quitman toddlers this summer.

Liles is charged with two counts of injury to a child. 

The girls mother, Daphne McDaniels, was indicted February 11 on two counts of capital murder. Last July, McDaniels' daughters, Natalye Price, 1, and Gabriella Guerrero, 3, were found dead in their beds.

Initially, Thomas Liles was charged in the case for tampering with evidence after throwing drug paraphernalia into a dumpster outside McDaniels' apartment the day the girls were found dead.

On the same day McDaniels was indicted on those capital murder charges, Liles was charged and indicted on two counts of injury to a child.

A gag order has been placed on the case, so investigators aren't talking, but the Texas Department of Children and Family Services tells CBS19 it investigated the family for allegations of medical and physical neglect before the girls' deaths.

McDaniels' neighbor, 22-year-old German Dalton -- who actually made the 911 call when the girls were found dead -- is charged with two counts of injury to a child.
