Camden – A second man has accused a former bishop of the Diocese of Camden of childhood sexual abuse.

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, who now leads the Diocese of Brooklyn, rejected the claim of wrongdoing that dates to the late 1970s.

“There is absolutely no truth to the allegation,” the bishop said Thursday. “I deny this outrageous and libelous claim.”

DiMarzio, who led South Jersey’s Catholics from 1999 to 2003, said he might sue his accusers.
