The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has arrested a 41-year-old man who is accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.Deputies arrested Danny Murchison of Linden Thursday. They say he raped the child on numerous occasions between April 2008 and June 2009.

Murchison is charged with 15 counts of first-degree rape of a child, 15 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, and 15 counts of incest.

According to investigators, the child's mother was unaware of the crimes until her daughter told her what happened.
