Child-killer’s Request for Name Change Opposed by Victim’s Father

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man convicted of abducting, molesting and killing a 10-year-old boy 15 years ago has petitioned a court to have his name changed.

Charles Jaynes, serving a life sentence for the 1997 slaying of Jeffrey Curley, petitioned Plymouth Probate Court to change his name to Manasseh-Invictus Auric Thutmose V in line with his conversion to the Wiccanism.

On the petition filed in June, the 37-year-old Jaynes lists his address as the Old Colony Correctional Center in Bridgewater and his occupation as inmate.

Robert Curley, Jeffrey’s father, tells The Enterprise of Brockton that he may exercise his right to object to the name change, but ultimately, “nothing will change what he has done.”

Jaynes and Salvatore Sicari lured Jeffrey into a car with the promise of a new bike.
