EUBANK, Ky. (WKYT) – A Sunday school teacher is facing charges related to sex crimes after he was accused of abusing a 16-year-old boy.

Rex Murphy is charged with sodomy and sexual abuse.

“The accusations were very graphic,” said Chief Colin Hatfield, with the Eubank Police Department.

According to Hatfield, Murphy told the victim he was from a family of ‘warlocks’ and could tell all of someone’s sins by touching them.

WKYT alleges Murphy told the boy he would tell his parents of all of his sins if he talked about the abuse.

Police say Murphy was arrested but they believe there could be more victims who have not come forward yet.
