ELKTON, Md. (AP) — A retired Episcopal priest accused of molesting two girls while living in Cecil County is still being held in custody after a judge reduced his bond. 

Prosecutors say Donald Belcher molested a 15-year-old girl in 2006 and an 8-year-old girl in September while living in North East. After being indicted in November, he was arrested in December in Montana and was extradited to Maryland in January. 

On Friday, Retired Cecil County Circuit Court Judge O. Robert Lidums reduced Belcher’s bond to $100,000 from $250,000.
