TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) –A local in-home daycare operator facing child sex abuse charges will be in court today.

59-year-old Gary Talkington is scheduled to be in superior court this morning. He's accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of five.

Investigators say Talkington and his wife ran an at-home daycare center at a home located on the Northwest side on Camino Del Cerro.

Court documents show the alleged abuse happened during nap time. Investigators say a little girl was lured out of the sleeping area away from the rest of the kids with the promise of candy.

These allegations came to light in April of this year.
