WASHINGTON-  The uncle of a man arrested in the 40-year-old kidnapping and murders of two sisters from Maryland is now part of the focus of investigators.

They believe he may have been involved in the crime and the cover-up. Investigators say 70-year-old Richard Welch sexually assaulted at least one of the sisters.

Twelve-year-old Shelia and ten year-old Katherine Lyon were abducted from a mall in 1976 and their bodies have not been found.

Welch is called a person of interest and has not been charged but his wife, Patricia, is charged with perjury. Their nephew, Lloyd Welch is charged with the girls' murder.
