NORTH WEBSTER — A North Webster man is facing several charges of sexual misconduct with the same minor. The sexual misconduct led to a pregnancy and a child being born.
David Edward Killian, 69, with addresses in Tennesee and North Webster, is being charged with three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor between the ages of 14 and 16, level 5 felonies.
On Aug. 10, 2017, an officer with the North Webster Police Department spoke with a minor who stated that Killian had touched her inappropriately. The officer and a caseworker with Child Protective Services then conducted an official interview.
The minor stated that on several occasions between March and August of 2017, Killian inappropriately touched and forced her to have sexual intercourse with him. The minor says she told Killian no several times during the incidents. All of the incidents occurred at Killian’s North Webster residence. The minor advised that she was scared and feels very uncomfortable when Killian is around.
In December 2017, the officer received information that the minor female was 7 1/2 months pregnant. The minor had the baby and DNA swabs were collected from both the minor and her child.
The officer then met with Killian and received consent to obtain a DNA sample. The officer sent all three DNA samples to the Indiana State Police lab for testing. The results determined a 99.9999 percent probability that Killian is the father of the baby.
Killian was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on July 26, with a $25,250 surety and cash bond.
