WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas man accused of fatally stabbing a 6-year-old girl, critically injuring her sister and raping their mother is charged with first-degree murder.

Sedgwick County prosecutors filed charges Tuesday against the 47-year-old man, who is related to the mother. He’s jailed on $1 million bond.

Wichita police responding to a vehicle accident Friday found the 6-year-old and her 24-year-old mother stabbed inside a Jeep in a strip mall’s parking lot. The girl died at a hospital.

Her 4-year-old sister, also stabbed, was found miles away wandering in a field.

Case documents that would show whether the man had an attorney weren’t available online Tuesday. Calls to the jail seeking the same information rang unanswered.

The Associated Press is withholding the man’s name to prevent potentially identifying a sexual assault victim.
