An upstate New York couple is being accused of beating a three-year-old boy with a belt so hard he was left brain dead. Alison and Donald Bovio, both 38, were arrested Monday on charges of first-degree assault for repeatedly beating the tot in their Seneca Falls home, WSTM-TV reported.
The couple allegedly beat the boy several times with a belt, causing his head to hit a hard floor surface that left him unconscious, court documents cited by the station say. The child was unable to breathe on his own and had no brain activity, according to documents. In 2014, Donald Bovio was charged with attempted murder after a woman accused him of choking her, according to MassLive. The Bovios are jailed at Seneca County Correctional Facility on $50,000 and $100,000 bond.
With devil horns on head and previous violence tendencies the child should have been removed from the home. Bystanders need to be vigilant in their reporting. If this couple was black, something would have been done, but their white privilege allowed them to kill this child.
White supremacy has teeth and this child was bitten by them.
