NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (NEWS10) – There are new details concerning the fatal church beating of a teen in western New York.
The latest reports show seven neglected dogs and birds, along with several cats were pulled from the family home of Bruce and Deborah Leonard. They are the parents who are now facing manslaughter charges for fatally beating their 19-year-old son and severely injuring his 17-year-old brother.
An animal shelter said there was feces and urine all over the house.
State police were made aware of the animals last week. It’s not clear why they weren’t found sooner.
