LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial of a local priest, charged in connection with the sexual abuse of two teens in the 1970's, is expected to begin Monday.

Reverend James Schook is charged with sodomy. The 65-year-old has terminal skin cancer, but was deemed fit to stand trial by a state doctor.

He was indicted in 2011. Schook is accused of abusing two boys at St. Thomas More Church in Louisville in the 70's where he was an assistant pastor.
