GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Central Texas say they've identified a new suspect in the molestation of a young boy for which a former high school football star was previously convicted.

Williamson County District Attorney Shawn Dick told the Austin American-Statesman on Thursday that he's reopening the case that led to the 2014 conviction of Greg Kelley for sexual assault of a child.

Kelley, who was 19 when he was convicted, is serving a 25-year prison term.

Prosecutors at the time said Kelley assaulted a 4-year-old boy at an in-home day care center.

Kelley, who has denied the allegations, was a Leander High School football player and was staying with a classmate at the Cedar Park home.

The case against Kelley was built largely on the testimony of the child.
