Police say a Danbury couple faces charges after a 9-year-old girl in their care was punished with an electric shock collar used to discipline barking dogs.
Forty-three-year-old Eduardo Montanez is held on $250,000 bond on charges including third-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and cruelty. Thirty-four-year-old Paula Montanez is held on $200,000 bond on charges including risk of injury to a child, conspiracy to commit third-degree assault and conspiracy to commit cruelty.
WVIT-TV reports police said Montanez allegedly forced the girl to bark so the collar would shock her, and his wife didn’t stop him. Police said the couple was upset about the girl’s school progress.
They were arrested Tuesday after an investigation triggered when the girl told a teacher. They appear Wednesday in Danbury Superior Court. It’s not immediately known who’s representing them.
Why can’t people hat don’t want children, can’t take care of their children, or don’t have the patience to take care of their children, just hand them over to people who want them, who can’t have their own, and certainly have the patience for them? Just plain not ok!
