UPDATE: Sixth Mohler family member charged in sex abuse case

Friday, November 13, 2009 | 5:10 p.m. CST

LEXINGTON — Another member of a family facing child sex abuse charges in western Missouri has been charged with rape in connection with the case.

Darrel Wayne Mohler of Silver Springs, Fla., was charged Friday with two counts of rape stemming from 1986. Court documents say the 72-year-old suspect was charged in Lafayette County, but it was unclear if he was in custody.

Five other men were charged earlier this week with several felonies, including forcible sodomy, rape with a child younger than 12 and use of a child in a sexual performance.

The other men charged are members of the Mohler family, including Darrel Mohler's 77-year-old brother, Burrell Edward Mohler Sr. of Independence, and his four adult sons.
