CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A Kentucky man was charged Wednesday with abducting and raping a mentally disabled 14-year-old West Virginia girl he met online, then forcing her to have sex with a Fairmont man who's also in jail.
State Police charged both 22-year-old Lewis Kelly Dailey of Radcliff, Ky., and 37-year-old Jamey Glen Dodrill of Fairmont with kidnapping, trafficking a minor, sexual assault and conspiracy.
Troopers say Dailey met the victim in Taylor County on Sunday, took her to a Fairmont home and raped her at least twice, then watched while Dodrill raped her there on Tuesday.
Both men remained in jail late Wednesday. Dailey was held on a $2 million bond, while Dodrill's bond was set at $750,000.
Sgt. Michael Baylous said the victim walked into the Harrison County Sheriff's Department after the suspects released her and reported the crime.
The investigation determined that the girl had talked with Dailey on a cell phone and by computer, and he knew she was a minor when he traveled across state lines to have sex with her, Baylous said.
State Police also arrested 23-year-old Parkersburg resident Allen Reeves during the course of their investigation but did not charge him in connection with the girl's abduction.
Baylous said Reeves also used the Internet to try to meet the girl, but noted, "the extent of his relationship with the victim is still under investigation."
Baylous said Reeves is a fugitive from Maryland, but it was not immediately clear what charge he is facing in that state.
It also wasn't clear whether any of the suspects have attorneys.
