An East Texas man who allegedly kidnapped his four-year-old daughter after killing the child's mother has been indicted for murder.

Brad Dunn, 35, was arrested, Sunday, December 1, 2013, after an Amber Alert was issued for his involvement in the kidnapping of his daughter, Kylie Dunn and the slaying of the mother of the child, Kari Dunn. He was indicted by a Harrison County Grand Jury, Wednesday.

After allegedly killing Kari, Brad took his daughter and, upon a tip from a driver in Cass County, he was arrested on U.S. Highway 59, south of Linden. The child is now safe with her family.

Brad was arrested by the Cass County Sheriff's Department and charged with murder. He has a criminal record in Gregg County, having been previously charged with theft (1998), assault (1999), speeding (2001) and assault/family violence (2003).

A bond of $5.1 million was set for the suspect, $5 million for the murder charge and an additional $100,000 for evading arrest, according to the Cass County Sheriff's Office and Texas Department of Public Safety.
