WI dad accused of teaching son to choke another

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A 30-year-old Wisconsin father is accused of teaching one son how to choke the other unconscious, a lesson caught on video.

Toribio Medina Junior of Fitchburg is charged with failure to act to prevent bodily harm of a child, strangulation and suffocation as party to a crime and child neglect resulting in bodily harm.

According to the complaint, a woman told police her two sons were staying with their father in Fitchburg during spring break when the video was made. It allegedly shows one boy choking his younger brother into unconsciousness, with the father telling his children how to do the maneuver.

Medina was jailed Friday on $3,000 bail. He was ordered not to have any unsupervised contact with any children.
