Delaware State Police have charged a Milford man for repeatedly sexually abusing a girl during a more than 3-year span in the early 1990s. Sixty-five-year-old William Tucker faces 131 criminal counts. The victim told investigators the abuse happened when she was 9 to 12 years old, while she was living near Harrington.

The woman is now 25. State police learned of the case while she was being interviewed recently about a separate sexual assault case involving her own child. Tucker was arrested in December by Milford Police in connection with the alleged abuse of the child.

Milford police seized letters from the Lighthouse Christian Center Church that corroborated the woman's accounts.

Tucker was released Thursday after posting $385,000 secured bail.
