A father-daughter pair was arrested for incest after two sisters competed to have sex with their dad, police say.
Travis Fieldgrove, 39, and his 21-year-old-daughter, Samantha Kershner, were arrested in Nebraska on Wednesday after their alleged intimate relationship was discovered.
Kershner reportedly told authorities that ‘her motivation to have sex with her father stemmed from a jealous competition with her half sister regarding who could have sex with their father,’ according to the Omaha World-Herald.

Kershner grew up without her dad, but she told her mother that she wanted to find out who her father was in 2015, Kershner told police.
Her mother identified Fieldgrove and the two arranged a meeting.
Over the next three years, the pair had a traditional father-daughter relationship before they allegedly became sexually involved on September 10, 2018, Kershner told police.
Both declined to tell police how the relationship became sexual, although Kershner later later told authorities about the ‘jealous competition with her half sister.’
On October 1, 2018 the pair got married at the Adams County Courthouse in Hastings, Nebraska – which no longer requires a blood test prior to obtaining a marriage license.

Fieldgrove later told police that he did not believe he was Kersher’s father because his name was not listed on her birth certificate. Both he and Kershner provided DNA to authorities for a paternity test.
The results came back on January 14 and determined that the probability that Fieldgrove is Kernsher’s father is 99.999 percent, according to court documents.
Fieldgrove later wrote on Facebook claiming that the test revealed Kersher was not his daughter.
Both were arrested on Wednesday and each were charged on one count of incest, according to the Grand Island, Nebraska police department.
The pair is being held in Hall County Jail with Fieldgrove on $100,000 bail and Kershner on $20,000 bail. It is unclear when they are due back in court.
