HARTLY, Del..- Delaware State Police have arrested a 33-year-old Hartly man on multiple sex charges involving two children.

Troopers charged Kevin E. Marrs, 33, with five counts of unlawful sexual contact, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and first-degree indecent exposure.  The investigation recently came to light at the beginning of December 2014 when an 11-year-old girl told her parents that Marrs sexually assaulted her after he babysat her when she was 9-years-old at the time.  

Police said the incident happened at the girl's home in Hartly sometime between September and November of 2012. Investigators said an interview was also conducted with the victim's younger sister, who informed investigators that Marrs sexually assaulted her while he was watching her at the same home sometime between March and May of 2013. Police said that at the time of the second incident, the victim was 7.

On Friday, Marrs was taken into custody by members of the Delaware State Police Sex Offender Apprehension and Registration Unit and transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with the aforementioned offenses.

He was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $134,000 secured bond.

Police said that due to the sensitivity of this case, and in consideration of the victim, only limited information will be released. Troopers did note that Marrs, who is a medium-risk Tier 2 sex offender from a 2001 fourth-degree rape conviction, has no familial relationship to the family.
