HARRISONVILLE, MO. (AP) - A Missouri man has been arraigned on second-degree murder and other charges involving three children he allegedly fathered with his teenage daughter.

A judge in Harrisonville, Mo., entered a not-guilty plea on the man’s behalf Monday and set bail at $500,000.

Prosecutors believe the 47-year-old man impregnated his daughter four times and had been having sex with her since she was 13. The daughter is now 19.

The bodies of two babies were found in coolers on the rural property where the family had lived. Authorities said the body of a third infant was found in Oklahoma.

The current charges involved the death of only one child.

The Associated Press is withholding the father’s name to protect the identity of the daughter.
