TW: Molestation & Death - Father kills man who tried to molest his 4-year-old daughter

10:01 pm - 06/12/2012

SHINER, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a father used his hands to beat to death a man who allegedly tried to sexually assault his 4-year-old daughter on their farm.

Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said Monday he doesn't anticipate arresting the father, who told police he heard the girl screaming. Harmon said nothing so far suggests the beating death happened for "any reason other than what he told us."

"In the course of trying to get her away from him, and protect her, he struck the subject several times in the head and the subject died," Harmon said.

The victim was only identified as a 47-year-old man from Gonzales, Texas. Harmon said the man appeared to have no prior criminal history and that he went to the property Saturday to help care for some horses.

Harmon said the father's name is being withheld because of the ongoing investigation. He said a grand jury will decide what, if any, charges the father will face

Ummm. Okay. Switch it to Rich Text if it's not already, and highlight everything in the body of the text. Then hit the LJ-Cut button (two to the right of the play button), which will give you an option for what you want the cut text to say. Copy the current title after "Death" and put that in the cut text, and pull that out of the title.

That way, you should have just the trigger warnings in the subject title and the description in the cut text, and people have more of a choice in how far they read.
