Couple arrested for beating boy with belt, causing brain damage



NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Alison Bovio and Donald Bovio are accused of thrashing their 3-year-old son with a belt in Seneca Falls, N.Y. (PROVIDED)
An upstate New York couple is being accused of beating a 3-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 pummeling the tot in their Seneca Falls home, WSTM-TV reported.
An investigation revealed Donald Bovio called 911 saying his stepson fell down the stairs, but police said the child had trauma injuries to his head and body.
The boy was airlifted to a hospital in Syracuse where he was put on life support.
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.
