Man Who Turned On Oven With Boy Inside Sentenced
A Minneapolis man has been sentenced to 180 days in the workhouse for abusing his girlfriend’s 10-year-old son, including turning on an oven with the boy inside.
Prosecutors say the boy was hiding in the oven from 23-year-old William Hurley when Hurley turned on the oven to force the boy out and whipped him with an extension cord.
The boy’s mother, 27-year-old Debra Chatman of Minneapolis, pleaded guilty to child endangerment and will be sentenced next month. She is not expected to serve prison time.
