Dad of Slain Mass. Boy Fights Killer’s Name Change
BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — The father of a 10-year-old Cambridge boy kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed, says he plans to be in court to protest one of his son’s killer’s name change request.
Robert Curley says Charles Jaynes should not be allowed to hide his crimes behind a new name.
Jaynes was one of two men convicted of the 1997 killing of Jeffrey Curley. Jaynes was convicted of second-degree murder and kidnapping in the case and is currently in a state prison in Bridgewater.
Jaynes is due in Brockton District Court on Tuesday to request a name change to Manasseh-Invictus Auric Thutmose V, in line with his conversion to the Wiccan religion. Wiccan leaders have distanced themselves from Jaynes.
Curley tells The Enterprise that “somebody needs to stand up and stop him.”
