The Lewiston man who was charged with sexually abusing, then slashing the throat of his girlfriend's 10-year-old daughter pleaded guilty on Monday morning in Niagara County Court.

Kim Tipton faces as much as 25 years in prison after pleading to one count of a predatory sex act against a child.

The Deputy D.A., Holly Sloma, said the county will be asking for the maximum when Tipton's sentenced in November.

Tipton faced 15 charges after the incident back in May.
