Man Charged In Disappearance Of 3-Year-Old Mariah Woods Appears In Court

ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. — Earl Kimrey faced a judge for the first time since being charged in the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods.

Woods was missing for more than five days before a dive team found her body in Pender County, North Carolina.

A massive search went on for days after the girl’s mother said she went missing after she put Mariah to bed in Onslow County.

Kimrey, 32, is being held on more than $1M bond.  He has been charged with concealing her death, obstruction of justice and a slew of other charges.

Kimrey is the mother’s live-in boyfriend.
