    Johnnie Lee Carter, inset, is accused of beating his daughter and gluing her eyes and mouth shut.

    Police say a 1-year-old West Texas girl whose eyes and mouth were glued shut has been released from a hospital as her father faces allegations he attacked her.

    Odessa police Cpl. Steve LeSueur said Thursday, Sept. 27 that the girl and two siblings -- a 2-year-old brother and 2-month-old sister -- were placed with Child Protective Services.

    All three children were at their Odessa home when police responded to a domestic disturbance Sept. 16.

    Their father, 29-year-old Johnnie Lee Carter, remains jailed in El Paso on a charge of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.
