FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say the home of a Philadelphia-area softball coach who has been charged in the sexual assault of a minor had burned down days before his arrest.
Thirty-four-year-old Fairless Hills resident Kevin Jones faces charges of statutory sexual assault and other counts. He's listed as coach of the Levittown Bulldogs, a girls' fast-pitch travel softball team.
Police allege Jones had an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old girl he met while coaching. Authorities say he's being held on $2 million bail after being taken into custody Monday. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
The Fairless Hills Fire Department says that on Jan. 25, days before Jones was arrested, his home in a mobile home park caught fire and was destroyed. The cause has not been determined.
