ST. LOUIS (CNN) – Two Missouri day care workers are facing charges over a so-called “fight club” video featuring 3- and 4-year-old children.

Mickala Guliford, 28, and Tena Dailey, 22, face felony charges of endangering the welfare of a child.

St. Louis County prosecutors said the two women directed at least six children to have fistfights.

The charges are connected to a 35-minute video that emerged in 2016. It was reportedly recorded on an iPad by a 10-year-old who was worried about his little brother.

According to the complaint, one of the women could be seen in the video “jumping up and down with excitement.”
