Daniel J. Kittle, a 27-year-old Foley man, is being accused of molesting his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter.
According to court documents, the girl’s mother took her to St. Joseph West Health Center for injuries that included bruises to her face, legs, arms and buttocks, as well as cuts to her genitalia.
While being interviewed by police, Kittle said he was driving the girl home when he became irritated because he was “coming down from his heroin high.” He pulled his truck over near Highway EE and Mansion Road and punched the girl twice in the head. However, he denied molesting the girl.
Bail has been set at $200,000 cash-only in the case and Kittle is being held at the Lincoln County jail.
