HARDIN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A man accused of trying to rape a young girl took a plea deal.

Jetto Dye, 29, pleaded guilty to attempted murder, kidnapping and attempted rape charges involving a 10-year-old girl.

Police said in June, the girl and her mother were visiting Dye and his family and stayed the night. Police said around midnight, the family ran an errand, leaving Dye and the girl at home.

Dye forced the girl into a wooded area where he tried to rape her.

Once attacked, investigators said the girl started to kick and scream, fighting for her life. Police said Dye tried to choke her to stop her from screaming. When Dye heard the girl's mother come home he let her go and ran away.

Dye is expected to receive a 30-year sentence.

His formal sentencing is set for January.
