Ex-headmaster indicted on child porn charges

WILMINGTON, Del. - December 11, 2013

The state attorney general's office says a New Castle County grand jury returned the indictments Monday against 53-year-old Christopher Wheeler.

Wheeler, who has no prior criminal record, stepped down in October as headmaster of Tower Hill School in Wilmington after authorities searched his home and school office as part of a child abuse investigation. He was arrested on Nov. 1.

He remains held on $1.5 million cash bail.
