(CBS/AP) DETROIT - The father of missing 2-year-old Detroit girl Bianca Jones has been charged with her murder.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced charges Wednesday against D'Andre Lane, who claims his daughter was abducted during a carjacking on Dec. 2, 2011.

Lane says he was carjacked while his daughter was secured in a child seat. The car was recovered but Bianca was never found.

Lane has publically denied any wrongdoing in his daughter's disappearance, although police expressed doubt just days after he reported her missing.

Lane is currently being held in the Oakland County Jail on an unrelated matter. He was expected to remain there for 14 days for violating a personal protection order, reports CBS Detroit.

According to Michigan prison records, Lane was jailed for more than three years on drug and firearm possession charges stemming from a 2003 arrest and was paroled in 2007. He also previously served a more than four-year probation starting in 1996 after being convicted of assault with intent to commit armed robbery, and a conspiracy charge.
