A Florida mother and her boyfriend are facing many charges after allegedly viciously abusing, torturing, and neglecting children in numerous ways, including forcing one of them to drink boiling water.
On May 9, the mom notified the authorities after her boyfriend allegedly assaulted one of the children with a mop handle. After reportedly hurting the 5-year-old, the man left on a four-wheeler.
When the police found the man, he was placed under arrest on suspicion of nearly two dozen charges, including aggravated child abuse, neglect of a child causing great bodily harm, and failure to report child abuse, abandonment, or neglect. He is currently being held in the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond.
