WASHINGTON (ABC7) — 

Forty years ago, an African-American couple, living in College Park, looked outside their window and saw a burning cross.

The man who eventually confessed to it is now an ordained priest who recently admitted he was a member of the KKK at the time.

Richard Reeve talks with the couple, Barbara and Richard Butler, who say the priest’s apology is not enough. The couple is now suing the Catholic Church.
