Man faces judge on charge of sex with missing girl

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – An 18-year-old Colorado man arrested for allegedly having sex with a girl missing for seven weeks is due in court for a bond hearing Tuesday morning.

Robert Laurencio Montoya faces felony charges including sexual assault for allegedly having an ongoing sexual relationship with 12-year-old Kayleah Wilson. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

Police say Montoya is not a suspect in the disappearance and death of Kayleah, who was last seen March 28. Kayleah’s body was recovered Wednesday from an irrigation ditch about a half-mile from her house.

In a statement, Kayleah’s mother says she had stopped the relationship in February when the mother learned about it.

Kayleah’s family planned a public memorial Tuesday afternoon.
