A Letcher County couple were charged with child pornography and sex abuse charges related to a video allegedly found on one of their telephones.

Kentucky State Police arrested Eric Banks, 46, and Nicole Combs, 34, at 4:34 a.m., April 3, after a trooper was called to a complaint on KY 7. During the investigation, the trooper said he determined that Nicole Combs had performed sexual acts on a child while Banks took video with a cell phone.

Combs is charged with first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse, and incest with a victim under the age of 12. Banks was charged with promoting a sexual performance by a minor.

Both are in the Letcher County Jail on cash bonds. Banks’s bond is set at $150,000 cash, and Combs’s is $250,000 cash.
