HARDIN, Mont. (AP) - A southeastern Montana man has denied charges alleging he killed his 2-year-old daughter.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/2oWb0CT ) 23-year-old Dana Redding Jr. of Hardin pleaded not guilty Wednesday to deliberate homicide and two assault charges during a District Court hearing in Hardin. An obituary by Bullis Mortuary said Redding’s daughter, Isabella Redding, died on April 5.

Prosecutors say the girl was brought to the hospital in Hardin with an open wound on the back of her head and bruising all over her body. Court records say the victim’s 3-year-old brother told an FBI child forensic interviewer that “daddy” hurt his sister and that a tool was used.

The girl’s mother, 21-year-old Kevannah George, pleaded not guilty to criminal child endangerment.

Redding remains jailed with his bail set at $750,000. George’s bail is $20,000.
