    A pediatric nurse accused of performing sex acts on an infant and videotaping it may have done the same thing to another baby.

    A grand jury indictment filed Sept. 26 accuses Michael William Lutts, 50, of taking sexually explicit digital photos of an 11-month-old girl. Read the full indictment here

    The pictures were allegedly taken around July 24. One month later, Lutts was arrested at his College Grove home and charged with sexual exploitation of a child.

    The Kaiser Permanente nurse was accused of performing lewd acts on his 2-month-old foster son, who was born prematurely.
