Rape charges filed against area man

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

CARUTHERSVILLE - A Pemiscot County man faces charges of first degree statutory rape and first degree statutory sodomy following an investigation into allegations made by three female juveniles.

Greg Morrow, 42, of Steele was arrested by Pemiscot County deputies following an investigation which began in January, according to Pemiscot County Sheriff Tommy Greenwell. In a news release, Greenwell said the juveniles were allegedly raped by Morrow over the course of the last couple of years. During the investigation, each victim was interviewed and evidence was obtained leading to the filing of formal charges.

Morrow will be arraigned in Division II of Pemiscot County Circuit Court before Judge Byron Luber on Thursday. Bond will be set at that time.

Greenwell said additional charges are expected to be filed at a later date as the investigation continues.
