NORTHFIELD, N.H. (AP) A church employee charged with sexual assault and theft will be returned to the state after a hearing next week, authorities said Friday.

Scott Nash, 46, of Northfield, was arrested Wednesday at Kennedy Airport in New York as he got off a flight from Aruba.

He is charged with molesting three young girls who are members of Trinity Episcopal Church in Tilton and taking more than $5,000 from the church.

According to a spokesman for the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, Nash had been employed by the church for three years as a part-time adminstrator. Since becoming a member five years ago, he had been elected as senior warden and was one of two youth ministers.
