The documents allege that "the respondent mother is aware that Mr. Kimrey abuses substances including pot, heroin, and methamphetamines".
Authorities believe they have found the body of Mariah Woods, a 3-year-old eastern North Carolina girl missing for more than five days, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Saturday.
Kimrey is charged with hiding 3-year-old Mariah Woods' body knowing she did not die of natural causes and obstruction of justice. The document lists several acts of abuse against Mariah and her two brothers, including physical violence and sexual abuse of the little girl, whose body was found this past weekend miles from her Onslow County home.
Mariah's mother Kristy Woods reported of her child's disappearance early last week.
Officials have not said what led them to arrest Kimrey, or what evidence suggested that Mariah was no longer alive. He made his first court appearance Monday morning.
According to state records, Kimrey has a criminal past including a larceny charge, and assault and drunk and disorderly conduct. Kimrey is originally from Mebane, his Facebook page says.
Kimrey is a graduate of Orange High School in Hillsborough. No such identification had been announced as of Tuesday afternoon.
"If you have surveillance video taken Sunday, November 26 through Monday, November 27, 2017, from your home, business, or game hunting cameras, please call the Onslow County Sheriff's Office at (910) 555-3113", said Lynch in a press release.

"My daughter wanted to give Mariah one of her own teddy bears just to show her that we love her", said Megan James, who has a three-year-old like Mariah. Among them are the FBI's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team and Team Adam from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. "The coroner had to look at the body, but the researchers are sure it's the Mariah, "Lynch said".
Investigators and law enforcement spent five days searching a five-mile radius around Mariah's house before expanding the search perimeters to Highway 53 and Highway 17 in Pender County.
