Murray High School Assistant Charged with Rape
A Murray High School assistant basketball coach and teacher’s assistant has been charged with five counts of rape in the third degree against an underage student.
Murray police arrested 30-year-old Kwen Trice on Friday.
Murray Independent School District attorney David Buckingham said Trice has been suspended without pay until the matter is decided in court. Buckingham said he wasn't sure if Trice had prior disciplinary action brought against him. A request for comment from Murray Independent Schools' central office was directed to Buckingham.
Buckingham confirmed all five counts of rape involved a single MHS student.
Trice, an assistant boys' basketball coach at MHS for the past three years, is free on a $20,000 cash bond.
