Authorities said Wednesday that Kenneth Elkins, who worked at the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant, allegedly installed the camera in a women's bathroom there and viewed at least three separate victims.

Elkins also faces state charges after a search of his home in the federal case turned up evidence of alleged additional crimes, including images of child pornography.

Elkins is next due in court Dec. 20 on the state charges and is scheduled for arraignment Jan. 15 in the federal case.

An attorney listed in court documents for Elkins in the federal case did not return a phone message seeking comment Wednesday.
