Charges in Md. girl's kidnapping, but not her death

The suspect in the slaying of an 11-year-old Salisbury girl found dead on Christmas Day has been indicted on charges of kidnapping, child abduction and burglary.

Online court records indicate Thomas Leggs Jr. was indicted Monday.

Leggs has not yet been charged in the death of Sarah Haley Foxwell. The chief medical examiner determined her death was a homicide. Authorities have said Leggs will face additional charges.

Leggs has convictions for sex offenses in Maryland and Delaware.

Sarah's body was found Christmas Day after a search that involved thousands of volunteers.
