PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - A Wood County man was sentenced to at least 15 years on charges related to incest and sexual abuse.

Kenny Lumeyer was sentenced to 15-35 years by Wood County Judge J.D. Beane.

Lumeyer had pled guilty to sexually abusing an underage relative after DNA samples showed a child gave birth to his baby.

Relatives all read statements in court about Lumeyer and how they have been impacted by what happened.

Lumeyer was arrested in January after an investigation into a tip about a possible sexual assault involving a young girl who was seven months pregnant.

Court documents show the girl lives with some mental disabilities.
