WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — A Trumbull County grand jury has returned an indictment against a man who is accused of abusing a boy on video.
Kyle McElravy faces two counts of endangering children and one count of domestic violence charges in Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas.
The indictment was filed Thursday. The indictment says McElravy tortured and cruelly abused a child under the age of 18 and attempted to cause physical harm to a household or family member over a period of time.
McElravy had been accused of repeatedly hitting a child in the head with an object. A complaint first filed in Newton Falls Municipal Court stated that the incident was captured on video.
Kyle’s wife, Amber, is facing similar charges for the alleged abuse of a child.
A Trumbull County grand jury returned an indictment against Amber in October for six felony child-endangering charges.
Amber was accused of beating a 5-year-old boy with a belt and throwing him across the room. An investigation began after a video surfaced on social media showing the alleged abuse of the boy.
Kyle was booked into the Trumbull County Jail on Dec. 6 when he was originally arrested, but he has since been released.
