Grand jury date set for man accused of torturing daughters

JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The case against a Jackson County man facing 18 counts of child abuse involving his young daughters goes to a grand jury in September.

29-year-old Sherman Nathaniel McBryar is accused of torturing his two young daughters at their Stevenson home.

He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for September 10th, and the case is set to be heard by the grand jury September 13th.

A criminal complaint states that McBryar put his two-year-old in a car seat in the bathroom with three goats while the temperature was over 90 degrees.

He is also accused of slamming his one-year-old's head into a wall and putting a wire around her wrist to keep her from sucking her thumb.

Deputies arrested McBryar after the children's mother made a complaint.

Jackson County's Chief Deputy said if the mother had not reported the abuse, the girls could have been killed.

McBryar remains in jail on a $2.1 million dollar bond.
