Man Indicted on Child Molestation Charges a Week After Arson, Shooting Conviction

A man convicted last week in a violent crime in Latonia was brought up on new charges Thursday.

Ronald Lee King, 51, was found guilty last week for setting fire to a Latonia mobile home and on other charges but now faces new two charges that could lead to a longer sentence in prison.

The Kenton County Grand Jury indicted King on charges of first degree sodomy and first degree sexual abuse of a child under 12.

Last week, the jury that convicted King recommended a 20-year sentence. He now faces 20 to 50 years or life in prison for the sodomy charge and 5 to 10 years for sexual abuse.
