A father-of-three from Alabama has been accused repeatedly of forcing a toddler into a clothes dryer and turning the machine on with the boy in it.

According to charging documents, the abuse targeting the youngsters took place between May 2017 and May 2018, but was not reported until September 2018.

The victim also said to police Todhuner put him in the washing machine and threatened to turn him on, warned the boy that the water will be very hot.

The documents did not reveal the nature of the relationship between Todhunter and the victim, nor the exact age of the toddler, but messages on social media suggest that the man has two sons and one daughter, the youngest is a three-year-old boy.
