SPENCER, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana prosecutor has filed murder, rape and kidnapping charges against a man who was arrested after the body of a 1-year-old girl was found two days after she disappeared from her father’s home.
Online court records show formal charges were filed Monday against 22-year-old Kyle Parker in an Owen County court.
An initial hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon. Court records did not list a defense attorney for Parker.
Parker was arrested after Shaylyn Ammerman’s body was found Thursday night in a remote area about 10 miles from her father’s home in Spencer, where she was reported missing Wednesday morning.
