OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A new 17-count federal indictment has been issued against a 20-year-old Oklahoma man who is accused of sexually abusing children at an orphanage in Kenya.

The indictment was returned Tuesday against Matthew Lane Durham of Edmond, who prosecutors allege engaged in sex acts with as many as 10 children ages 4 to 10 while volunteering at the Upendo Children’s Home near Nairobi from April to June 2014.

The indictment alleges Durham engaged in illicit sexual conduct with minors under 18 and aggravated sexual abuse of children under 12.

Durham was named in a 24-count indictment in January.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Bob Troester, says the latest indictment combines several counts of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct against Durham into a single count.
