    A Wichita Falls man charged for the continuous sexual abuse of a child earlier this year is now back in jail on new charges in the case.
    Authorities arrested 54-year-old Antonio Leija over the weekend.
    They arrested him on a sealed indictment, charging him with three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
    He now has four counts against him.
    A now 20-year-old woman told police the man abused her for several years, starting when she was just 11-years-old.
    The woman said the sexual abuse continued until she was 14.
    Police say they talked to Leija about the accusation and he denied committing the acts.
    He's now in the Wichita County Jail on $450-thousand worth of bonds.
