DETROIT, Mich. (AP) -

A Detroit-area man removed from the priesthood nine years ago has pleaded guilty to two federal child pornography charges.
 
   The U.S. attorney's office announced Wednesday that Timothy Murray made the pleas to one count of distributing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography.
 
   Prosecutors say the 62-year-old Novi resident used peer-to-peer software to trade child pornography with others, including an undercover Department of Homeland Security investigator.

   A search warrant executed at Murray's home recovered at least seven different computer devices containing child porn. Murray's collection included more than 650 movies and 450 images.
 
   The Archdiocese of Detroit removed Murray from public duty in 2004 after investigating a complaint of sexual abuse involving a boy from years earlier.
 
   Murray will be sentenced Dec. 4 in Detroit federal court.
