KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest accused of abusing a girl in the 1960s has died, leaving only the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph as defendants in a civil lawsuit.
Lawyers representing the alleged abuse victim filed paperwork Monday in Jackson County Circuit Court to formally remove the Rev. Francis McGlynn from the lawsuit. The 84-year-old McGlynn died earlier this month.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/Jx5RYK) the 2011 lawsuit was the fourth filed against McGlynn since 2003. The other three were settled.
The woman accused McGlynn of sexually abusing her when she was a student at St. Catherine School in Kansas City between 1963 and 1964.
McGlynn denied the allegations.
