A West Texas man has been accused of beating his 1-year-old daughter and gluing her mouth and eyes shut.
El Paso County records show 29-year-old Johnnie Lee Carter was being held Wednesday on a charge of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.
Carter was arrested Monday at an El Paso motel and faces extradition to Odessa.
Odessa police Sept. 16 responded to a domestic disturbance. Police said Carter fled but his toddler was found with facial injuries and her eyes and mouth glued shut.
News from around the state of Texas.
She was transported to a hospital for treatment. Her current condition is not known.
An affidavit said the mother told police that her husband choked and punched their toddler before applying adhesive. A super glue stick was found nearby.
Online records didn't list an attorney representing Carter.
