HARTFORD, Conn. -- A University of Connecticut music professor is under investigation by police amid decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct and child molestation.

UConn officials announced the investigations of 66-year-old Robert Miller on Monday. He hasn't been charged with any crime.

Miller didn't return several phone messages from The Associated Press. He was placed on administrative leave on June 21 and barred from campus.

Officials say a student told a faculty member that Miller had sex with UConn students, visited freshman dorms and provided drugs to students.

And a state police search warrant says five men allege Miller molested them when they were 10 to 13 years old and attending a camp for ill children, where Miller was a counselor.

One accuser says he was molested in Fairfax County, Va., in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The other four allege Miller molested them at his home in 1992.
