The man has been charged on counts of endangering the welfare of a child/creating a substantial risk in the first degree, and domestic assault in the second degree.
A Missouri man has been arrested after his disabled girlfriend was found in a horrific condition, abandoned in a bathtub. The man, Bryan Snow, 30, has been accused of allegedly abusing his girlfriend and their 5-year-old twin daughters, People reported.
The poor woman was rescued after the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District (CJC) personnel were called to do a "lift assist" at the residence where they found her bruised and in a bathtub with fecal matter all around her. A complaint warrant was then filed by the Jackson County prosecuting attorney's office. The woman has Multiple Sclerosis as well as high functioning autism. Snow had apparently told officers that he had work for two days in Kansas City and a friend was supposed to keep an eye on his girlfriend after he put her in the bath. After the intervention, the woman was transported to the hospital where she had to be treated for severe bedsores and possible infections.
Officers then went back to the apartment where they found the couple's "extremely malnourished" twin girls. According to the warrant, the girls were transported to a children's hospital, reports suggested "physical child abuse, failure to thrive and child neglect (malnourishment)."
According to the warrant, the girls told the police all about the kind of torture that they were subjected to. The girls had been tied up and hidden in the back of a wardrobe for days, which is how they were found when officers first arrived on the scene. They also told the officers that they were afraid of their father and that both parents would choke them. People reported that the Jackson County prosecuting attorney's office has charged Snow with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child/creating a substantial risk in the first degree and domestic assault in the second degree. It has also been reported that Snow's bond is set at $65,000 and it is not clear if Snow had retained legal counsel to comment on his behalf.
