Police say an Alabama man is charged with killing the man who molested his daughter more than a decade ago.

Sheriff's officials say the father is charged with murder in the shooting of 59-year-old Raymond Earl Brooks. The Associated Press isn't naming the suspect to protect his daughter's identity.

Brooks was a registered sex offender who was shot to death at his home in rural Cullman County on Sunday.

Records show the suspect was a witness against Brooks in a case involving an 8-year-old girl. Brooks pleaded guilty to sexual abuse in 2002.

Chief Deputy Max Bartlett says the father also is charged with shooting at a stepdaughter's boyfriend. That shooting happened at a store moments before Brooks was killed.

Barlett says the motive in both shootings is unclear.
