TULSA, OK -- A man accused of sexually abusing his daughter for years and getting her pregnant eight times, faces new charges.

Tulsa Police say DNA shows Bert Miner is the father of the victim as well as the father of her five children born in Tulsa between 1999 and 2005.

Even though the three-year statute of limitations for incest has past, the law says any time Miner was living out of state, doesn't count toward that three years.  That allowed prosecutors to charge him with four counts of incest.

The victim is currently pregnant again.  Police believe it is also her father's child.
