      Man charged with producing child porn at day care

      Authorities say a 23-year-old western Michigan man produced child pornography at a home where his mother had operated a day care center.

      Travis Stiehl of Lowell was arraigned Monday in a Kent County district court on charges of child sexually abusive activity and illegal computer use. He remains jailed on a $250,000 bond.

      Stiehl requested an attorney but none was assigned by Tuesday.

      The Grand Rapids Press reports federal agents found images of unclothed boys on Stiehl's computer. Authorities say he admitted to making three videos of children.

      Officials haven't said if the children went to the day care. State records show the center's license was revoked in December after an investigation began.

      Stiehl has a hearing May 9 to determine if prosecutors have enough evidence for a trial.
