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.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
