Man Charged With Child's Kidnapping, Rape Now Back In Mississippi

The man charged with kidnapping and raping a 10-year-old girl in Moss Point is now behind bars in Jackson County. Thursday, police extradited Maris Dion Miller, known on the streets as "Ice Cream," from Mobile.

Investigators say on February 7th, the victim was taken from her home on Raby Avenue while she was sleeping. They say she was then assaulted somewhere in the Orange Grove community of Jackson County, and was left to wander the roadside. A passerby picked up the child and called authorities.

A preliminary hearing for Miller is set for next week.
