An Adams County man allegedly burned and beat a 4-year-old boy. The district attorney said the boy isn’t Michael Love‘s son. His mother gave him to Love in September, after they met in a homeless shelter. Court records say that Love punched the 4-year-old in the stomach five times because the child was hiding food. Love allegedly hit the boy at least 20 times on his arms, legs, stomach, back and head. The records go on to say that Love failed to seek medical attention for the boy after he fell out of a moving vehicle, and he did nothing after finding the boy face down, gurgling in a bathtub. Love finally took the 4-year-old to the hospital after he found him unresponsive Dec. 4. Once the boy got there, he needed emergency surgery for blood pooling in his brain.
