SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors are filing new charges against a man accused of luring a woman to a remote eastern Utah cabin, locking her in a shed and forcing her to perform sex acts for food.

Authorities said in charges filed Thursday that 37-year-old Jared Stephen Morgan sexually assaulted two other girls in the years before the 2014 cabin attack.

Prosecutors say the abuse began in 2006 when the first victim was 12 and grew to include two victims.

Police say Morgan took one child away to Arizona and Idaho after it was discovered and the assaults continued until this year.

The 15 new charges in Salt Lake County include rape, child sodomy and kidnapping. Morgan is also charged in eastern Utah’s Duchesne County.

His attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
