CHINO VALLEY, Ariz. — Police arrested a couple after they found a child beaten, burned and bound Thursday afternoon.
At approximately 2:45 p.m., Chino Valley police responded to the report of a 10-year-old boy who was not breathing.
Police discovered that the boy had second and third-degree burns and some bruising over his body.
Emergency crews then performed lifesaving treatment to the child.
The child was transported to Phoenix’s Children Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
Authorities arrested Daniel Terry, 36, and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Julianna Moreno.
