A Shadyside man, already serving a life sentence for crimes committed in Harrison County, is now facing new rape charges in Belmont County.

Detective Ryan Allar was contacted by Sergeant Byers with the Cadiz Police Department regarding 77-year-old Robert Eickleberry.

Eickleberry was arrested in March on rape and gross sexual imposition charges involving a child under the age of 13.

He later pled guilty to a rape charge, and a Harrison County judge sentenced him to life in prison with the eligibility for parole after 10 years.

Eickleberry has been in the Noble Correctional Institution, but on Friday, he was transferred to the Belmont County Jail awaiting arraignment.
