CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities have filed more charges against a Kentucky man and a West Virginia man accused of kidnapping and raping a mentally disabled 14-year-old girl.

Additional charges of sex trafficking a minor and second-degree sexual assault were filed Thursday against 22-year-old Lewis Kelly Dailey of Radcliff, Ky., and 37-year-old Jamey Glen Dodrill of Fairmont.

They were already jailed on charges of kidnapping, trafficking a minor, sexual assault and conspiracy.

State Police say the girl was assaulted at locations in Fairmont and Clarksburg.

The U.S. Attorney's Office declined comment on whether the men could face federal charges since the crimes involved the use of cell phones and computers, and Dailey crossed state lines.

But Harrison Prosecutor Joe Shaffer tells the Exponent-Telegram it's possible the case could land in federal court.

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Kentucky man is charged 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.

State Police on Wednesday charged 22-year-old Radcliff resident Lewis Kelly Dailey and 37-year-old Jamey Glen Dodrill with kidnapping, trafficking a minor, sexual assault and conspiracy.

Troopers say Dailey met the victim Sunday, took her to a Fairmont home and raped her, then watched while Dodrill raped her there on Tuesday.

Both men remain in jail. Daily is being held on a $2 million bond, while Dodrill's bond was set at $750,000.

State Police also arrested 23-year-old Parkersburg resident Allen Reeves, claiming he also used the Internet to try to meet the girl.

It wasn't clear if the men had attorneys.
