NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – A West Virginia man will go on trial in a few months for the repeated rape of a Nashua (New Hampshire) girl more than 30 years ago.

Donald Tyler, 78, of Martinsburg, W.Va., has been indicted on 13 counts of rape. He’s accused of sexually assaulting a young girl over the span of a decade, beginning in 1971 when the girl was 5 years old.

Authorities have not said why the charges were filed so long after the last incident.

Jury selection is scheduled for March.
