ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The man charged with killing a 3-year-old southeast Missouri girl might face the death penalty.

Prosecutors filed a new charge of statutory aggravating circumstances against Shawn Morgan. That charge allows the state to seek the death penalty.

The state also filed a child kidnapping charge against Shawn Morgan.

He is accused of abducting Breeann Rodriguez from just outside her Senath, Missouri home earlier this month.

Morgan lives in the same street where Rodriguez lived.

Several days after Rodriguez was abducted, her body was found in a drainage ditch.
