OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - An attorney says two of the four people facing prostitution charges in a western Kentucky city have left the country.

The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reports 52-year-old Jingie Yuan and 56-year-old Li Shengwu are now in China, according to attorney Steve Dowell. The newspaper reports Yuan and Shengwu were facing felony charges of promoting prostitution along with 33-year-old Yong Liu and 28-year-old Mo Li following a months-long investigation into the Relaxing Touch Massage parlors in Owensboro.

Dowell said Yuan and Shengwu are in China might not return. He said the other Liu and Li are in Louisville and say they are not guilty, adding they “intend to appear and do what’s required.” Dowell said he no longer represents the Yuan and Shengwu.
