A 56-year-old man has been jailed after fathering three grandchildren with his daughter.
Charles Shamblin Jr is alleged to have had an incestuous relationship with his daughter over a 13 year period.
The alleged abuse began when the girl was seven years old and continued until she was 20.
Police in Charleston, West Virginia, said the girl gave birth to three children.
An investigation into the incest was launched earlier this year when the woman, now aged 35, told police that her father began abusing her when she was seven years old.
She told detectives she gave birth to her first daughter when she was 14 years old. Further children followed when she was aged 19 and 20.
Investigators say a paternity test that was administered at Marshall University in Huntington confirmed Shamblin to be the father of his daughter’s three children, now aged 21, 16 and 15.
Shamblin Jr.appeared in Kanawha County Circuit Court on charges of second-degree sexual assault, incest and sexual abuse by a parent or guardian.
