The investigation sent shockwaves through the state last month when he, his wife and a friend were all charged in relation to alleged sex offences against her daughter.

Now police have charged the man with 79 offences.

He faces two counts of having a sexual relationship with a child and two counts of indecently dealing with a child – all relating to his biological daughters, aged four at the time of the first alleged offence.

They are said to have taken place between 2001 and 2006.

The 45-year-old man also faces 65 charges relating to his stepdaughter and stepson – aged five and six at the time of the first alleged offence.

Among those allegations are charges relating to using drugs to carry out sexual acts, and rape between 2011 and 2015.
