A Greendale man was arrested for brutally beating two toddlers so badly that both suffered spinal fractures. The boys' mother also faces charges.
A woman went to the Greendale police station on April 29 and told investigators the about the abuse.
Police went to a home and saw that Lee's three-year-old son was bruised from head to toe, including his genitals. He had a possible foot fracture and he was missing patches of hair. A nurse called it the worst beating of a child she'd seen in her 12 years on the job.
The two-year-old suffered bruises on his neck, ear and upper torso, buttocks and ribs.
Both boys were taken to High Point Health Hospital. There, it was determined their injuries were severe enough to transfer them to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
The three-year-old told investigators "daddy" caused the injuries. He wouldn't talk about the injuries to his genitals.
The boys' mother, Jessica Lee, told police that her boys called Roger Dozier daddy but he is not their father.
Lee told police she'd left the boys in Dozier's care the night before. When she returned she said it was dark and she checked on them and went to sleep.
When she woke up the next day, she said she saw the bruises on her boys. She said she yelled at Dozier but she didn't call police or take them to get medical care. She told police she was scared and didn't know what to do.
