A southeastern Indiana minister faces child sexual abuse charges in Kentucky for allegedly molesting a child several times, including inside the church where he previously preached.

A grand jury in Lewis County, Kentucky, recently indicted 63-year-old Duncan D. Aker Jr. on sexual abuse and sodomy charges involving a victim under 12 years of age. He was arrested May 3 by Greensburg, Indiana, police on a Kentucky warrant.

Kentucky State Police spokesman Joe Veeneman says Akers was minister at the Vanceburg Christian Church at the time of the alleged abuse.

Akers was most recently a Greensburg Christian Church minister.

WTHR-TV reports that Akers allegedly sexually abused a child in Kentucky multiple times over a 3-year period in his car, home and inside the Vanceburg church where he preached.
