An Alexander County woman is facing charges after deputies say she molested a 4-year-old at a church while services were happening.

According to the Alexander County Sheriff's Office, 52-year-old Carol Diane Britto, of Taylorsville, was charged with one count of first degree statutory sex offense and one count of indecent liberties with a child.

According to investigators, during the summer of 2012 Britto molested a 4-year-old that she was watching during services at a church.

After months of investigation, investigators arrested Britto at her home and is being held in the Alexander County Detention Center under a $750,000 secured bond.

She is scheduled to appear before a judge on Sept. 8.

Investigators say the case is ongoing and may involve other victims.
