AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Investigators say Alyami, who is not related to the victim, also engaged in inappropriate and illegal contactwith the victim while at his home.

The victim in now in foster care by the Lee County Department of Humane Resources pending a completed investigation.

Childers is being held at the Lee County Detention Facility under a bond of $150,000 while Alyami has a bond set at $50,000. 

Authorities say additional charges are possible in this case.
