ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Roseville man is accused of whipping his two children for changing the TV channel from a Christian station.

A criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County says Stanley Ogbonna admitted grabbing a cord and striking his 10-year-old daughter in the head and neck. The man’s 8-year-old son told an investigator his father beat him nearly every day.

Ogbonna is charged with malicious punishment of a child.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press says examinations at Children’s Hospital in St. Paul showed marks on both children.
