An employee at the Henderson County Detention Center has been charged with rape.

Kentucky State Police says 26-year-old Brittany L. Murch was arrested on Wednesday and is charged with two counts of rape and two counts of promoting contraband.

Troopers say the investigation began when authorities heard reports of official misconduct with a Henderson County Detention Center employee.

State police say it is alleged that Murch had inappropriate sexual relations with a state inmate housed at the facility back in August.

The investigation also showed that Murch brought methamphetamine and alcoholic beverages in the detention center.

Murch is being held in the Henderson County Detention Center in Henderson and the investigation is ongoing.
