Dad charged in beating
Police say son, 4, was hit with belt for killing pet rats


Charles Perry


LITCHFIELD — A father who said he beat his 4-year-old son with a belt after the boy apparently killed two pet rats was arraigned Friday in Bantam Superior Court on charges of assault and risk of injury.

Police judged that his punishment was more than reasonable parental discipline.

Charles Perry, 22, of 92 Cookes Ridge in Torrington, was ordered by Judge Richard M. Marano under the terms of a protective order to not harm the boy under penalty of more serious charges.
