The 2-year-old daughter of a Fairfield, Conn., lawyer charged with stabbing his neighbor to death two weeks ago had told her mother that the man molested her “in the starry nights,” according to a police report released Tuesday.

Police said the lawyer, Jonathon Edington, climbed through 58-year-old Barry James’ bedroom window and fatally stabbed him on Aug. 28, after his wife told him what his daughter had said.
