An Iowa state lawmaker was arrested Friday and charged with felony sexual abuse.

Police say Rep. Henry Rayhons of Garner had sexual contact in May with his wife Donna Rayhons, a care center resident not able to give her consent. She died last week.

The 78-year-old Republican represents the 8th District, which covers part of north-central Iowa. He was taken to the Hancock County Jail.
