LEXINGTON — Four men accused of molesting young relatives two decades ago in western Missouri have pleaded not guilty.

Burrell E. Mohler Sr. also requested a venue change and a new judge.

Another son, Jared Mohler, faces similar charges and was scheduled for a bond-reduction hearing Monday. That hearing was continued until April 5.

Darrel Mohler, a brother of Burrell E. Mohler Sr., has a change of venue hearing scheduled Tuesday.

The Mohlers are charged with raping and molesting young relatives over roughly a decade beginning in the mid-1980s.
