Mother's boyfriend charged with rape, killing of 4-year-old

Posted: Updated:

BUTLER, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man is jailed on charges he raped and killed his girlfriend's 4-year-old son at the motel where they had been staying.

Butler County authorities charged 20-year-old Keith Lambing on Monday in the death last week of little Bentley Miller.

Lambing's mother, 43-year-old Kristen Herold, was rushing the boy to a hospital on March 21 when she pulled over and called 911 after Bentley stopped breathing. Police charged her with endangering the boy and hinder Lambing's apprehension after both were found hiding in the attic of an abandoned Butler home on Wednesday.

Authorities said then that Lambing was suspected of killing the boy at the Super 8 Motel while his girlfriend was away, but charges weren't filed until this week.

Lambing's attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment.
