ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Prosecutors say a 14-year-old girl is fighting for her life after being injected with heroin.

KTUU reports ( the girl was in critical condition at an Anchorage hospital on Sunday. Twenty-six-year-old Sean Warner remained jailed and a judge set bail at $90,000 after prosecutors said he used a belt as a tourniquet and shot heroin into the girl's arm.

The victim, who has been identified only as J.D., was found the next morning face-down in her own vomit and struggling to breathe.

Warner's father and friend disputed prosecutors' story and said he's a Navy veteran who saved lives as a medic in Afghanistan. They said Warner had struggled since returning from the war and they had worked with him to get his life together.
