NORMAN, OK — An Oklahoma City man has been ordered to trial in connection with 40 counts of sexual abuse involving three children.

Special Judge Steve Stice ruled Tuesday that evidence presented in a preliminary hearing was sufficient to hold Daniel Ryan Chadwell, 31, for trial. Chadwell is accused of sexually abusing a now 12-year-old girl, a now 14-year-old girl and a now 8-year-old boy over a period of years, beginning in 2009.

Most of the charges involve the 12-year-old girl, who testified Chadwell began abusing her when she was 5 or 6 and that the abuse continued for years at two Cleveland County residences.

According to a court affidavit, the girl said Chadwell slapped her and threatened to hurt her or her mother if she reported the abuse. A friend of the girl, now 14, also testified to abuse she said occurred when she spent the night with her friend. Some counts allege Chadwell inappropriately touched the now 8-year-old boy.

Chadwell originally was charged with 32 counts of child sexual abuse. Stice approved the filing of eight more counts following testimony in the preliminary hearing that concluded Tuesday.

Chadwell is being held in the Cleveland County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail.
