Grand jury indicts man on rape of a 5-year-old child

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A Warren County grand jury indicted a Bowling Green man Wednesday on rape and sodomy charges.

Tracy Allen Ward, 46, who has been jailed since June 20 when he was arrested, is accused of violent sex crimes against a five-year-old child and was also indicted Wednesday on a drug possession charge.

Ward told police he was innocent but offered to confess if it helps the investigation end faster, according to his original arrest citation.

Ward is lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail. Warren Circuit Judge Steve Wilson set his bond at $50,000.
