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.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
