A 61-year-old man was sent to prison yesterday accused of molesting his granddaughter over a four-year period. 

Magistrate Samuel McKinney charged the elderly defendant, whose name is being withheld to protect the identity of the victim, with nine counts of incest.

The defendant was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services. His case will be moved to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment slated for service on April 17.
