PROVO — A Provo man who prosecutors say was engaging in illegal sexual conduct with a teen neighbor threatened to kill the girl and her family using voodoo if she told anyone, according to charging documents.

Jean Marc Alcius, 25, was charged Wednesday in 4th District Court with five counts of unlawful sex with a 16-year-old, a third-degree felony.

When police questioned Alcius about the allegations, "He did make a statement to the victim and her family that he could kill them with voodoo (if) she said anything about the acts," the charges state.
