OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Archdiocese of Omaha says an investigation has substantiated several allegations of sexual misconduct with minors against a priest who died last year.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the archdiocese looked into the accusations against the Rev. Theodore Richling, who died in December.

A news release says the archdiocese received complaints against Richling last summer and informed the Douglas County Attorney's Office. The archdiocese concluded its internal investigation in September.

Richling was ordained in 1971 and served at several rural and urban parishes in northeast Nebraska.
