Father of Aniya Day-Garrett speaks after Cuyahoga County proposes changes to children's services

He says he had sought full custody of Aniya after believing she was in danger.

Mickhal Garrett, who's 4-year-old daughter Aniya Day-Garrett was allegedly murdered by her mother and mother's boyfriend last March, spoke outside Cuyahoga County Administrative Headquarters this afternoon after County Executive Armond Budish proposed several changes to children's services Tuesday.

The changes come following heavy scrutiny against children's services, with critics saying they could have done more to protect Aniya.

Multiple accusations of abuse have since surfaced, and Mickhal says he had sought full custody of Aniya after believing she was in danger.
