(AP) DOVER, Del. - Three Delaware day care workers accused of encouraging a pair of 3-year-olds to fight each other are out on bond while they await a preliminary hearing on felony assault and other charges.

Dover police say 19-year-old Tiana Harris of Dover, 21-year-old Estefania Myers of Felton and 47-year-old Lisa Parker of Dover each posted $10,000 secured bond after being arrested Monday.

All three are charged with felony assault and conspiracy, as well as several misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

The three were employed by Hands of Our Future LLC Day Care. State officials suspended the day care center's license after authorities obtained cell phone footage of a March incident in which adults allegedly encouraged the toddlers to fight.
