WELEETKA, OK -- A pastor in Weleetka is accused of molesting young girls ranging in age from eight to 14.

Police arrested 51-year-old Marvin Lowe.  Officers booked him on 15 counts of lewd molestation.     

Lowe preaches at the Arbecka Indian Baptist Church of Weleetka.  It is located just a half mile from where Skyla Whitaker and Taylor Paschal-Placker were found dead.

Right now, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says it does not believe Lowe is connected to their deaths.
