Affidavit: Iowa family abused adult son for years
COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) — A Council Bluffs family of three adults was arrested Wednesday on kidnapping charges after the father’s 20-year-old son claimed he was severely burned and abused for several years, according to an affidavit.
The court document said the son, who ran away from home around March, was at times starved, chained with a dog leash and forced to sleep while standing.
The son told authorities that his father, James Beyer Jr., 51, and his stepmother, Rebecca Beyer, 45, had abused him for years and threatened to kill him. He said his stepmother often burned him with utensils heated from a kitchen stove.
