An Oklahoma couple was arrested after authorities said they brutally abused their 10-year-old son.
Oklahoma City Police arrested 36-year-old Toney Zeno and 36-year-old Tamara Zeno on charges of child abuse, enabling child abuse, and neglect.
Authorities say the boy’s biological mom, who lives in Colorado, sent her three sons to visit their father in Oklahoma for two months. When they returned, the 10-year-old was very thin.
The child told his mother that his father and Tamara tied him to a chair using zip ties and forced him to swallow peroxide and soap. He also said Tamara hit him with a golf club and choked him.
The child was then forced to sleep tied to the chair.
Toney and Tamara, who is an eighth-grade teacher, were booked into Oklahoma City Jail.
