Church Beating Victim Tried to Save Brother’s Live

Posted by doctore0 on October 22, 2015

The teenager who survived a beating inside a secretive New York church that killed his brother said their family whipped them with an electrical cord for hours for refusing to answer the pastor’s questions. In his first testimony since the attack, Christopher Leonard said in court Wednesday that he tried to give CPR to his 19-year-old brother, Lucas, when his brother stopped moving. Lucas Leonard died from the assault inside Word of Life Christian Church in New Hartford on Oct. 11th. The revelations came at a preliminary hearing for his half-sister, Sarah Ferguson, who is one of six people facing charges in the incident. The teens’ parents, Bruce and Deborah Leonard, are charged with manslaughter in Lucas’s death.
