Cops say the kid suffered multiple lacerations and bruises on his right hand, right leg and buttocks. Anthony's landlord called the cops after hearing the kid "pleading for mercy," according to Newsday.com.

Badalamenti and Jessica Muniz -- his live-in girlfriend and mother of the child -- were arraigned by the First District Court in Hempstead, NY on charges of second-degree assault, possession of a dangerous weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

oh yaaaaaaaaaaa    

This type of abuse happens every single day, at least this neighbour stepped up to the plate and did the right thing. That poor kid will live with this forever atsuch a impressionable age. Momma can say good-bye in a letter to her son..and I hope the 2 of them get to spend plenty of times behind bars...all who beat their kids are ANIMALS!!!!!!!!

Probably on anabolics. Honestly, with the rate that the people on that show loose weight, they are probably all on some form of steriods, or at the very least a very good thermogenic. As a trainer, this show has disgusted me from day 1. No one should ever loose more then 5 pounds in a week, any more then that is very harmful.

I say the both of them should be stripped naked. Give a couple kids a belt and let them both have it! Makes me sick how some mom's today will let their boyfriends harm their babies! It's like they would rather have that D*&K then protect their children! I'm a mom and i would never let any man hurt my kids! Stories like this makes me so mad! Better yet....i wish someone would give me the job of beating men's @sses who abuse women and kids!
