  A former Hopkinsville church daycare worker accused of endangering children is facing 30 additional charges this week related to other alleged victims.

Christian County Commonwealth’s Attorney Richard Boling said the new charges, in a superseding indictment against Alison Simpson, allege a total of eight victims were endangered by Simpson's conduct.

WKMS previously reported a former senior pastor of First United Methodist Church and former director of the church daycare also face charges of being complicit to the alleged crimes. Boling said Simpson’s pre-trial conference is January 29.
