— Cumberland County authorities have charged a mother and her two adult sons with more than two dozen felony charges stemming from recent allegations of child prostitution.

Arrest warrants allege Delicia Anonietete McKoy, 43, Derek Wayne McKoy, 24, and Patrick Eugene McKoy, 24, all of 2567 Bel Aire St., used the unidentified child for the purpose of sexual servitude.

Delicia McKoy, jailed Tuesday under a $30,000 bond, faces two counts of promoting the prostitution of a minor and one count each of human trafficking of a child victim and sexual servitude of a child victim.

Derek McKoy, in jail under a $695,000 bond, faces seven counts each of human trafficking of a child victim, sexual servitude of a child victim and promoting the prostitution of a minor. He also faces one count of abduction of a child.

Patrick McKoy is charged with one count each of human trafficking of a child victim, sexual servitude of a child victim and promoting the prostitution of a minor. He was in the Cumberland County jail Tuesday under a $75,000 bond.

Sheriff Earl "Moose" Butler said more arrests are expected in the case.

Authorities say the May 14 arrest of a registered sex offender, 38-year-old Tullous Kenyard Burrow Sr., led investigators to the McKoys.

Burrow was arrested on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender after investigators discovered he was not living at the home he listed with the North Carolina Offender Registry.

According to the registry, Burrow, 38, served three years' probation after being convicted Dec. 7, 2007, of indecent liberties with a minor and second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor for crimes involving a 15-year-old child.
