The wife of Woodrow Karey, 53, (pictured left) filed a rape complaint against Pastor Ronald Harris, Sr., 53, (pictured right) on September 25, two days before her husband walked into Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center in Lake Charles, Louisiana and shot and killed him while he was preaching in front of the congregation, said Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso.
…Though rumors are running rampant that Harris was involved in a relationship with more than one woman in the congregation, Sheriff Mnacuso says their focus is on text messages between Harris and Karey’s wife. While the texts are reportedly sexual in nature, it is unclear whether the sexual relationship was consensual or if assault occurred.

The trial date has been set for Terry Greer, the Gardendale pastor charged with killing his wife earlier this year.
Greer is accused of shooting his wife Lisa and their 18-year-old daughter Suzanna in their home on January 10. Suzanna reportedly wrestled the gun away from her father and ran to a neighbor’s house for help.
Police officers arrived to the Greer home to find the pastor in his bathroom, stabbing himself repeatedly with a kitchen knife. He was restrained and all three family members were taken to the hospital for treatment. Greer’s wife died of her injuries at the hospital and his daughter Suzanna survived.

Memphis minister Rodney Carr (pictured), who was arrested last year and charged with criminal exposure to HIV for knowingly infecting a woman, was recently spotted on a popular Black dating website, BlackPeopleMeet, looking to hook up with a potential mate, reports WREG Memphis.
Carr, who reportedly tested positive in 2005 for HIV, allegedly infected a married woman whom he reportedly dated in 2010 and 2011; her identity has not been revealed.
On a routine gynecological visit, the woman’s physician reportedly suggested an HIV test. When she reportedly received her results, she knew Carr had infected her. According to the woman, the 47-year-old preacher never told her he was HIV positive. The woman claims she trusted Carr, because he is a minister.
On the dating website, Carr has two profiles: one under his name and another where he is listed as “Minterwonderful.” When the unnamed victim was told about Carr’s online profiles, she told WREG, “He’s not wonderful. He’s a creep. Going around doing what he’s doing. He’s not wonderful at all.”

A former Winlock youth pastor was charged with four counts of second-degree child rape Wednesday afternoon in Lewis County Superior Court.
Michael Duwayne Whitson worked as the youth pastor for the Winlock Assembly of God and the alleged victim was in the church’s youth group, court documents state.
The current pastor of the church, the Rev. John Evantrease, said the news was a shock when he learned of it Thursday morning after a story appeared in The (Centralia) Chronicle.
Evantrease, who has been with the church six years, said he doesn’t know Whitson or the victim and was previously unaware of the alleged crime.
… The charges stem from an alleged sexual relationship Whitson began in 2002 with a Winlock boy who was 12 years old at the time, according to court documents. Whitson, 51, now of Vancouver, was likely 39 or 40 at the time.
… The boy told deputies Whitson initiated a sexual relationship, trying to convince him he was gay and that the two were “in love,” court documents state.

A Memphis minister is accused of spreading more than the gospel.
One woman is accusing him of infecting her with HIV, and she doesn’t believe she’s the only victim.
“The reason I’m going to court and trying to get other women to come forward with this is because they need to know,” said the victim.
We agreed to conceal the woman’s identity. You’ll only see her shadow.
What she wants you to do is hear her voice.
It is her warning to other women.
“I went to the doctor for a check up and they asked if you want to be HIV tested and I said sure why not. 2010, that’s when I found out,” she said.
She found out she was HIV positive and is fighting to bring the man she believes knowingly infected her to justice.
She claims a Memphis preacher, Minister Rodney Carr, is spreading the virus that leads to AIDS.
He’s now charged with Criminal Exposure to HIV.
