    Accuse sb + that-clause; Appologise to sb + that-clause

    We say:
    Accuse somebody of + -ing.

    Is it possible to use "that-clause" after "accuse"?
    For example:
    He accused me that I had stolen his pen.

    The same situation with "apologise".
    Appologise to somebody for something.

    Is it possible to say:
    He appologised to me that he had stolen my pen.
