OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - An Owensboro pastor has been suspended after allegations of inappropriate conduct with a minor.

Blessed Mother Church officials released a statement saying Father John Meredith left the church earlier this month on a medical leave of absence. That leave of absence has now turned into a temporary suspension.

Officials aren't saying what he's accused of doing. Police say they are opening an investigation to look into the allegations.
