GRAND ISLAND -- According to the Grand Island Police Department, a father and a daughter, a 21-year-old female and a 39-year-old male, have been arrested for incest.
On January 29, Travis E. Fieldgrove, a 39-year-old St. Paul male, and Samantha H. Kershner, a 21-year-old St. Paul female, were arrested on warrants relating to an incest case, according to authorities.
GIPD said this case relates to the two being involved in an intimate relationship beginning in September of 2018 in Grand Island, Nebraska despite evidence that Fieldgrove is the paternal parent of Kershner.
Evidence leading up to the arrest suggests that Fieldgrove and Kershner were aware of the biological relationship before being intimate, and further indicates that they quickly married one another after being notified of the investigation.
Court records indicate that the two married at the Adams County courthouse in Hastings.
Both Fieldgrove and Kershner are charged with felony incest in both Hall and Adams counties.
