(WMC-TV) - The man accused of kidnapping a 5-year-old Poplar Bluff, Missouri girl is set to face a judge Monday. And today, he could be hit with a new set of charges.

The girl was reported missing last Wednesday morning, but was found several hours later after Jeffrey Shelton turned himself in to police.

The Butler County prosecutor has charged Shelton with four felonies involving the kidnapping.

A preliminary hearing is set for November 15.
