Two Nuwaubian women out on bond

EATONTON – Two women facing charges of child molestation along with Nuwaubian leader Malachi York and his wife were released from jail on bond Thursday afternoon.

Chandra Lampkin was charged with three counts of child molestation and two counts of aggravated child molestation, and Khadijah Merritt was charged with eight counts of child molestation and three counts of aggravated child molestation. Putnam County officials said both were released on $40,000 bond.

Kathy Johnson, the woman described by York’s followers as his “main wife,” was released Tuesday after an Alpharetta man put up a $75,000 cash bond for her.

York remains in custody without bail. He is the leader of a quasi-religious sect that moved in 1993 from Brooklyn, New York, to a 400-acre rural property in Putnam County.

York and Johnson were arrested in May and face charges of sexually abusing children in a 208-count state indictment and a four-count federal indictment.
