CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A 31-year-old former hospital worker accused of sexually assaulting and critically injuring his girlfriend's 13-month-old daughter has been ordered to stand trial.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens, The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press say Clinton Township District Judge Sebastian Lucido called David Montaldi of Mount Clemens one of the "greatest risks to the community" he's ever encountered during a preliminary examination on Tuesday. Montaldi faces first-degree criminal sexual conduct and child abuse charges.
Montaldi originally said his 200-pound English mastiff sat on the child. His attorney, Michael Steinberg, said Tuesday that Montaldi now says his dog knocked the child from his arms while he was standing near stairs.
The girl suffered multiple skull fractures and other injuries.
Montaldi remains jailed without bond pending a March 28 court appearance.
