CORSICANA, Texas — The boyfriend of a dead 6-year-old girl's mother is the "current primary suspect" in the sexual assault and hanging of the girl, the Navarro County sheriff's office said Thursday.
Live-in boyfriend Kevin Wayne Anders was arrested Wednesday on a charge of possession of child pornography. He remained in the Navarro County Jail on Thursday. Bond was set at $100,000.
Although sheriff's deputies have not charged Anders in the death of Hanna Mack, they did identify him as a primary suspect, Chief Deputy Mike Cox said Thursday.
"I can't go into the details, but we're eagerly awaiting lab results," Cox said.
Anders, 32, is a clerk at an E-Z Mart gas station and convenience store, according to his arrest report. He is married, but not to Hanna's mother.
Anders was convicted in 2005 on a misdemeanor charge of driving with an invalid license. He was sentenced to one month plus 15 days in jail and fined $500, according to Texas Department of Public Safety records.
Dana Mack discovered her daughter missing Monday morning. The first-grader's body was found in a rust-covered garage behind the family's home in Navarro Mills Lake, about 65 miles south of Dallas.
