MANNINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia State Police say a fired cheerleading coach has been charged with sexually abusing more male students.

Sgt. Michael Baylous says 31-year-old Amanda Jo Barker of Mannington was charged Monday with three counts of sexual abuse by a person of trust and one count of soliciting a minor by computer.

The Marion County Board of Education fired the North Marion High School freshman coach last month after she was charged with abusing a 16-year-old male.

Baylous says two 16- and 17-year-old boys have since come forward with new allegations.

Barker was arraigned in magistrate court on those charges and released Monday evening on a $100,000 bond. Court officials say Barker hasn't hired an attorney.

A woman answering a phone listing in her name said Tuesday it's the wrong number.
