A one-time teacher at an elite Massachusetts boarding school has been returned to the US from Thailand to face child rape charges involving one former student.

The Norfolk District Attorney's office says 72-year-old Reynold Buono left Milton Academy in 1987 and had been living in southeast Asia for a number of years.

Prosecutors say Buono will be arraigned on Wednesday on three counts of rape of a child and three counts of rape of a child with force. He was named in sealed indictments last year.

Milton Academy said in February 2017 that independent investigators had determined Buono, who headed the school's theatre programme for more than a decade, molested at least a dozen male students. An attorney for Buono rejected the findings of the investigation at the time.
