HICKORY, KY (KFVS) - A Kentucky man who has been wanted in connection to an ongoing child abuse investigation has been arrested in Oklahoma.
At approximately 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Kentucky State Police were notified that Ronald H. Saunders, 29, of Kevil, Ky. had been found and arrested in Lawton, Oklahoma.
Saunders had been a fugitive from Kentucky since March 4, 2016 when a Ballard County Grand Jury indicted him on three counts of criminal abuse first degree - child 12 or under, and one count of being a persistent felony offender.
This indictment stems from a two month investigation by Kentucky State Police.
Saunders is in custody in Oklahoma on fugitive charges pending his extradition back to Kentucky.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by KSP.
