Williamston Police Chief Richard Inman said Scott Darrell Starnes, 32, of Edgewood St. Wednesday turned himself in to the Williamston Police Department.
“He agreed to turn himself in following a month-long investigation,” Inman said.
The investigation began, he said, when Christine Starnes, the suspect’s wife, filed a police complaint alleging acts of cruelty against a child.
According to the police report, “the complainant stated that her husband is deeply involved in the witchcraft of Wiccaism and she is concerned that he is using her and the children without them knowing or their consent.”
Inman said detectives discovered pictures of minors engaged in sexual activity on Starnes’ home computer while investigating the wife’s complaint.
Starnes was processed at the Williamston Police Department before signing a $25,000 personal-recognizance bond and being released.
