NEW CASTLE — A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on child rape and pornography-related charges after police say a woman found images of him molesting a child – on an electronic notepad computer he sold to her at a flea market.

The New Castle News reports police were alerted to the images by the woman, who found them stored in the device when she used it to take a photo of her own daughter with the device.

Police say 43-year-old Donald A. Miller, of New Castle, was charged and turned himself in last week. He faces a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges that also include involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

Police say the notepad contained seven videos of Miller performing sex acts with an 8-year-old girl. Online court records don’t list an attorney for Miller.
