BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A southeastern Montana man with a history of child abuse and neglect referrals is charged with killing his 2-year-old daughter.

Big Horn County prosecutors on Friday charged 26-year-old Dana Redding Jr. with deliberate homicide, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2ob6SOf ) Redding’s daughter died Wednesday at the hospital in Hardin. He was arrested that day.

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.

Prosecutors say the girl had an open wound on the back of her head and a lot of bruising. An autopsy found she died of injuries caused by “abusive physical contact.”
