MADISON — An Indiana man is accused of impregnating a 13-year-old girl.

Indiana State Police began their investigation after receiving a report of a young girl who was pregnant. The investigation led detectives to identify a 26-year-old man as the father of the baby.

Detectives later determined that the 26-year-old man and the 13-year-old girl had been living together in Jefferson County and were "involved in a relationship."

Investigators have charged the 26-year-old man with child molesting. The man's identity is not being released by WRTV so as not to identify the child victim.

The incident remains under investigation by Indiana State Police and the Department of Child Services.
