CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A Montana man charged with kidnapping and assaulting an 11-year-old girl from Wyoming is facing new felony charges.

The Associated Press reports 40-year-old Jesse Paul Speer was charged with aggravated assault and sexual abuse of a minor in the first and second degree after a court hearing.

He was initially charged after his arrest in October with kidnapping, aggravated assault and using a gun in the commission of a felony. He had pleaded not guilty to those charges.

Speer is being held in Cody, Wyo., with bond set at $2 million.

He is accused of abducting the girl in Cody in early October. Authorities say he sexually assaulted her before releasing her. Hunters later found her and took her to safety.

Speer previously lived in Colorado.
