Maryland Sex Offender Denies Killing Kidnapped Girl

Volunteers line up outside Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Md., to help search for an 11-year-old girl who police say was kidnapped from.

SALISBURY, Md. — An attorney for a man charged in the disappearance of an 11-year-old Maryland girl says his client denies harming the child.

Authorities say Sarah Haley Foxwell was abducted from her home last week. Her body was found in the woods on Christmas Day after a search that involved thousands of volunteers.

Registered sex offender Thomas Leggs Jr. was charged with kidnapping and burglary a day after the child was reported missing.

His public defender says Leggs “has denied and continues to deny any involvement in this crime.”

The 30-year-old is being held without bond. Police say he is being separated from other inmates.
