JACKSON, COUNTY (WAFF) - Additional charges will soon be on the way for a Stevenson man charged with torturing his own two small children.
The incidents took place at his home off Highway 72 in Stevenson.
Sherman Nathaniel McBryar is charged with two counts of willful abuse of a child.
The criminal complaint against McBryar lays out in explicit detail the allegations of torture involving his two children, including that McBryar took the two and a half year old and "put her in the car seat in the bathroom with three goats and room temperatures being above 90 degrees."
The complaint also claims that McBryar slammed his one and a half-year-old's head into the wall repeatedly, and put a wire tie around her wrist to prevent her from sucking her thumb.
McBryar neighbors are shocked, especially to find out about his criminal past.
McBryar was convicted in 2002 of murder, but he got a new trial. In his new trial, he was convicted of manslaughter and received a 15 year sentence.
McBryar spent just four and a half years in jail for the 2001 murder of Terri Lynn Hughes in Scottsboro.
"Arrested for murder and convicted don't get out in two or three days or two or three years, it takes years!," said a neighbor of McBryar who wished to remain anonymous.
He could face more charges stemming from the torture allegations at his Stevenson home off Highway 72.
"He's looking at an additional five or six more counts of the same charge," said Jackson County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Chuck Phillips.
McBryar is currently being held on a quarter million dollars bond.
"He don't need to get out of there at all. He needs to stay there the rest of his life," added the neighbor.
