The wife of a Luray pastor charged with sexual battery of a minor faces charges of her own.

Margaret Daley is charged with failure to report child abuse or neglect and cruelty and injury to children. Page County Sheriff John Thomas said Margaret Daley operated an in-home daycare, with more kids in it than she was legally licensed to have. Thomas says parents should do their homework on any daycare.

"Make arrangements to drop in during the day when there are no parents there, just randomly, even if you have to work five days a week. Get a family member to drop in. See how things are going. See what's going on in the home and draw your own conclusions," said Thomas.

A grand jury handed down an indictment against Daley's husband, 70-year-old James Richard Daley, the pastor at Beth Eden Lutheran Church in Luray. He faces 12 charges of aggravated sexual battery of a victim younger than 13.
