2 charged with rape, kidnapping in case of missing Bassfield toddler found in Sumrall
JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) - Two men have been arrested and charged in the kidnapping and rape of a Jefferson Davis County toddler who was found in Lamar County on Friday, Dec. 31.
The men were arrested on Wednesday night in Covington County. Both made their initial appearance on Thursday at the Jefferson Davis Justice Court.
Keldrick J. “K.K.” Magee, 33, was charged with four counts of rape, one count of sexual battery and one count of kidnapping.
Kim S. Lodge, 62, was charged with two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping.
Both men were denied bond. Both remain in custody at the Jefferson Davis County Jail.
Fifteenth Circuit Court District Attorney Hal Kittrell’s Jefferson Davis County office will oversee the case.
“The innocence of a child was lost with this assault,” Kittrell said. “An individual (who) does this, these individuals, I don’t understand the mindset. Never have, never will.
“What I do know is anybody who does this to a child does not deserve to be amongst us.”
