Man accused of murder, assault on 2 toddlers

LIMA, Ohio A Lima man is to be arraigned Monday in Allen County Common Pleas Court on charges he beat his girlfriend s 2-year-old daughter to death and assaulted her 3-year-old brother.

Daniel Stiles, 29, was indicted Thursday by an Allen County grand jury on one count each of murder and attempted murder and four counts of felonious assault stemming from the March 23 death of Mia Jorris and injuries to Matthew Jorris.

According to the county sheriff s office, Mr. Stiles called 911 just before noon, saying the little girl was barely breathing. Emergency responders arriving at a duplex on Stevick Road about four miles west of Lima found that her brother also had sustained blunt-force trauma to the abdomen.
