LANGLADE CO, Wis. (WSAW) - Two Merrill men have been charged with multiple felonies stemming from a child sexual assault investigation.

The news release stated during the 1990s and early 2000s the Huses were associated with the Apostolic Worship Center and the former Evergreen Christian Academy school near Elton in Langlade County. In the early 2000s the Huses moved to Fond du Lac and were involved with the Cornerstone Worship Center. Since the 1990s Travis Huse has also lived in Kentucky, Missouri, Maine, and New Hampshire. Scott Huse has lived in New Hampshire and Maine.
