Sheriff: Dad kills daughter's alleged attacker

Authorities say a father beat to death a man who he said tried to sexually assault his 4-year-old daughter at their rural Texas farm

The Associated Press

SHINER, Texas — Authorities say a father beat to death a man who he said tried to sexually assault his 4-year-old daughter at their rural Texas farm.

Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said Monday he doesn't anticipate arresting the father following Saturday's killing near Shiner, about 130 miles west of Houston.

Harmon says nothing suggests the beating death happened for "any reason other than what he told us."

Harmon says the victim was a 47-year-old man from Gonzales who appeared to have no prior criminal history. He says the man went to the property Saturday to help care for some horses.

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