Mom, boyfriend charged with severely beating 4-year-old

A mother and her boyfriend have been arrested and charged with severely beating her four-year-old son.

Amy Pherigo and Jose Morales appeared in bond court Sunday – where a judge ordered them held on $2 million bond.

Prosecutors say Pherigo’s son was found in his South Side home April 29 with brain injury, broken ribs, a lacerated liver and spleen and facial injuries.

Investigators say a tip to DCFS led them to the child – who is recovering.

Pherigo claimed the boy was injured after falling down stairs.

    Please take away that child if he is abused. There are too many abused children by parents. Why do they have children if they are going to mistreat them? Keep those 2 locked up.
