Prosecutors revealed Justin Hansen is under investigation for allegedly molesting a young relative. 

Hansen was convicted of beating Brittani Marcell with a shovel in 2008 and sentenced to 18 years in prison. 

Last month he filed a motion asking for a lighter sentence, and wants credit for the time he spent on a GPS monitor. 

He says being locked up is hard on his family.

In their response to his motion, prosecutors say his children are with their mother, and are doing better now that he is away. 

They also point to the new investigation KRQE News 13 reported on, into whether he molested a minor. 

Prosecutors confirm it’s a relative, but have not said when the alleged abuse took place.
