Cabell County Couple Charged with Sexual Misconduct< < Back to
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A Cabell County couple charged with multiple counts in a child sex case was in court Thursday.
WSAZ reports 31-year-old Dainel Lovejoy and 29-year-old Nicole Lovejoy, both of Milton, were indicted last week by a grand jury in Cabell County.
The couple was arrested in November after West Virginia State Police found more than a dozen files shared online, portraying what appears to be adults engaging in sexually explicit conduct with young children.
After being taken into custody, troopers said Daniel Lovejoy admitted to investigators that he had been downloading materials depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. They say he also admitted to sexually molesting a 7-year-old family member for years.
Inside the home, investigators said they found a memory card with images of Daniel and Nicole performing sexual acts with the 7-year-old.
They are set to go on trial in May.
