According to the Posey County Sheriff's Office, 67-year-old Delbert Wayne McKinney of New Harmony, Indiana, has been arrested for Child Molestation and Failure of a Sex Offender to Possess Identification.

The sheriff's office says PCSO Detective Kyle Reidford was notified by the Indiana Department of Child Services on July 13 of a complaint of sexual abuse in New Harmony.

Detective Reidford then set up an interview at Holly's House in Evansville, Indiana, where the 12-year-old victim was interviewed.

The victim told Reidford that she was at a family friend's residence in New Harmony when McKinney touched her in an inappropriate manner.

According to PCSO, McKinney is currently on parole in the state of Indiana as a lifetime sex offender registrant for pleading guilty to one count of Child Molestation in 2018 in Posey Circuit Court.

McKinney was interviewed by Posey County Sheriff's Office detectives and as a result, was arrested in connection to the July 13 complaint.

McKinney was lodged in the Posey County Jail where he's being held without bond.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
