NC man charged with incest after impregnating his biological daughter

Posted: Updated:

(Meredith) -- A man and his daughter are facing incest charges after a warrant says they conceived a child together.

The daughter, 20-year-old Katie Pladl was adopted as a baby. When she turned 18, she got in contact with her biological parents online. Later, she moved in with them and their two other children in Virginia, according to multiple reports. 

The father, 42-year-old Steven Pladl, eventually separated from his wife and she moved out. She wouldn't find out about her husband's sexual relationship with their daughter until she read a disturbing page from her other daughter's diary. According to warrants obtained by KRON4, it contained drawings of a pregnant Katie Pladl and mentioned the kids were supposed to call Katie their stepmom. 

The wife then took out protective orders keeping Steven Pladl away from her and her other daughters. She says Steven and Katie even got married in Maryland and then moved to North Carolina. She said she believes Steven brainwashed and manipulated Katie.

Steven and Katie were arrested on January 27, 2017, at their home in North Carolina. They had a baby boy with them who was reportedly born in September 2017. They have been charged with incest with adult, adultery, and contributing to delinquency. They are in a county detention center waiting to be extradited back to Virginia.
