A 21-year-old Midway man charged with having inappropriate sexual contact with a relative appeared in Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday and entered a not guilty plea to his charges.

Brennan Ray McKenna was named as the alleged perpetrator when the victim reported the incident to authorities.

The victim is said to have told Mountain Home police she had been asleep in her bed when she awoke and allegedly found McKenna touching her inappropriately.

She said immediately after she woke up, McKenna left the room and then the residence only a short time later.

McKenna was located and arrested three days after the alleged incident. The arrest followed an interview with investigators.

McKenna is charged with second-degree sexual assault, which is a Class B felony.

He remains in the Baxter County jail with bond set at $15,000.
