JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina man faces the death penalty in the death of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old girl, whose disappearance sparked a five-day search.

The StarNews of Wilmington reports that Fourth Prosecutorial District Attorney Ernie Lee announced Thursday that he intends to declare the first-degree murder case of Mariah Woods as capital and will seek the death penalty against Adolphus Early Kimrey II, citing aggravating circumstances.

Kimrey was first initially charged with lesser crimes Dec. 2, including concealing a death. He was indicted earlier this week on charges including first-degree murder and felony child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.

It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
