The child star curse continues.

Former child actor Dorjan “Dee Jay” Daniels, who costarred on the ’90s sitcom “The Hughleys,” is in serious trouble with the law.

Daniels, 23, has been arrested for murder, along with two other men, and charged with the fatal stabbing of 26-year-old John Joseph outside a nightclub in Stockton, Calif., in August 2011.

He is suspected of being a Bloods gang member and is currently being held in San Joaquin County Jail with no bail. The charges include premeditated murder, street terrorism, marijuana possession and gang activity charges. He faces life in prison if convicted.

Daniels played D.L. Hughley’s smart-aleck son Michael on the sitcom that ran from 1998-2002. His other TV credits include “E.R.”, “Family Matters,” “Coach,” and “Grace Under Fire.”
