UPDATE, JUNE 15, 6:48 P.M.: The original version of this post referred to the 5-year-old victim as being the son of Lori Louisa Pincus, 39, of Placentia, who is charged with allowing the boy to be tortured by her live-in boyfriend.

Actually, to protect the 5-year-old's identity, authorities have only referred to him as being related to Pincus and in her care.

That's the booking photo of Pincus at right. The one for her parolee boyfriend, Carmen William Iacullo II, also 39, of Placentia, follows after the jump . . .

ORIGINAL POST, JUNE 15, 12:13 P.M.: A 39-year-old Placentia man is scheduled to be arraigned today for the violent torture of the 5-year-old boy in the care of his girlfriend.

Authorities say the boy was beaten, stabbed and burned with cigarettes over the first eight days of this month.

Carmen William Iacullo II, who is being held on $1 million bail and a separate no-bail parole hold, could get life in state prison if convicted of the charges against him. His girlfriend, Lori Louisa Pincus, faces separate counts that could imprison the 39-year-old Placentia resident for more than six years.

She is accused of allowing Iacullo to beat the little boy with his fists and a wooden kitchen utensil, burn the kid with cigarettes and a lighter and stab him with scissors or pliers.

Injuries suffered by the unidentified child, who was also picked up by his genitals and dropped to the ground, included a black eye, extensive bruising all over his body, multiple cigarette burns to his chest, a lighter burn to his anus, and stab and cut wounds to his leg and toes.

Besides failing to report the abuse to police, Pincus is accused of failing to seek any medical attention for the boy's injuries and intentionally keeping him out of school so personnel would not see signs of the torture.

The child's nightmare finally ended on June 8, when Placentia police officers arrested Iacullo at his home for a parole violation for possessing drug paraphernalia. He was taken to the Santa Ana Police Department jail, but what officers did not know is Pincus had allegedly ordered the boy to hide under his bed so his injuries would not be seen.

Prosecutors allege that on the following afternoon, Pincus left the 5-year-old home alone while she visited Iacullo in jail. After a long time left unattended--and still visibly injured--the boy wandered out of his house onto a main road toward a gas station. A friend of Pincus driving by saw the child walking alone and stopped to help.

Seeing the boy's black eye, the friend called the Placentia Police Department, whose investigation led to the charges being brought against the couple at today's arraignment hearings in Santa Ana.

Pincus, who is being held on $100,000 bail, faces one felony count of child abuse and one felony count of accessory after the fact.

Iacullo is charged with one felony count of torture, one felony count of child abuse, and one felony count of corporal injury on a child with a sentencing enhancement for causing great bodily injury. He also faces sentencing enhancements for a prior strike conviction for felony battery in 2006 and prison priors for child abuse in 2002 and possession of methamphetamine for sale in 2003.

Janet, excuse me?  Watch your accusations about telling me to step up again, telling me to make the right choice because I didn't the first time?  You are a perfect example of people who speak and have no idea what they are talking about.  Just because I said I had first hand knowledge of the accused and their guilt, certainly does not mean I could have prevented what happened, or didn't step up the first time.

Well then guest..........that little boys going to remember that there was someone that helped by putting away those that have made his life unbearable. that is never going to make all the nightmares or the unhappy feelings that child will face. Heres your chance to step up again and this time i hope to hell you make the right choice cause you didnt the first time when you had that hand of knowledge.

ITALY311, it does say ACCUSED, but there is no question they did it.  I have first hand knowledge of this case and can tell you with 100% certainty, both the mother and boyfriend are guilty of all accusations.

So glad this baby walked around like he did. I am so happy that he survived. While reading the story, I truly thought he had died :( The smug look of the abuser and the idiot who called herself a mother should rot. I hope their toes get cut off so they will have to drag themselves around prison...

Torch their asses with lighters and burn their anuses so when they poop it reminds them of the torture they did upon the lil' kid.  Then drop them off from their genitals and let them beg for mercy. Sick people deserve sick treatment.

I would say that all the parents have to do is say the kid is an enemy combatant. If he broke something in the house or used foul language they should have no problem with this claim. Then, it should be perfectly legal to torture their kid. Or, was that just while bush was in office?

I find her more at fault then him, obviously he needs to die a tortuous death but she carried this boy for nine months and pretty much gave him the green lite to abuse her baby, if she hadn't gone to visit that piece of shot the boy would have probably died

Seriouslly, we need manditory executions for killers, rapist, child abusers. No Life sentences at the cost of 45,000 a year per inmate. Give me 1,000 and I will gladly hang them for the State. No more spending money on low life people like this it's time to put them out of there misery.
