SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) — A Suwanee couple is accused of molesting Korean exchange students living with them.

Gwinnett County police said they began an investigation after a student complained to a school employee. Police said they have charged Woo Ki Yi and his wife, Hyun Ju Yi, with two counts of child molestation and six counts of furnishing alcohol to minors.

Police Cpl. Jake Smith told reporters that the six students were males and females ages 15 to 18. He said families paid $15,000 each for their children to live with the couple. He said the students reported the couple gave them alcohol and had them play games that required them to remove their clothing until they were naked.

The couple could not be reached for comment because they are jailed without bond.
