Man accused of torturing daughters refuses plea deal

SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) - A Jackson County man accused of child abuse and torturing his daughters rejected a plea deal.

Sherman McBryar had until noon today to accept the deal or face trial. He chose to face trial.

A criminal complaint stated that McBryar put his two-year-old in a car seat in the bathroom with three goats while the temperature was more than 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.

McBryar was deemed competent to stand trial this spring.

Jury selection for the trial will begin Monday in Scottsboro.
