Mass. child killer, now Wiccan, seeks name change

A Massachusetts man convicted of abducting, molesting and killing a 10-year-old boy has petitioned a court to have his name changed because of his conversion to Wiccanism.

Charles Jaynes wants to change his name to Manasseh-Invictus Auric Thutmose V.

Jaynes serving a life sentence for the 1997 slaying of Jeffrey Curley. He and another man lured Jeffrey into a car with the promise of a new bike.

Robert Curley, Jeffrey's father, tells The Enterprise of Brockton (http://bit.ly/PCjDr1) that he may exercise his right to object to the name change, but ultimately, "nothing will change what he has done."

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