A man attacked the man accused of killing his toddler son in court on Thursday.
The New York Daily News reported on the incident.
On Thursday, Desean Brown, accused of murdering 29-year-old Nyteisha Lattimore and putting her son, Nylo, into the Ohio River still alive, was punched by the boy’s father during a procedural hearing.
During a hearing, Antonio Hughes leapt at Brown, punching him repeatedly in the head and neck before he was held down by officers.
Officers in the court handcuffed Hughes and helped him to his feet, but he again lunged at Brown; four officers were needed to hold Hughes down. Hughes was taken out of the courtroom by police.
Hughes was charged with contempt of court and has been ordered to serve 7 days in the Hamilton County Justice Center. He has not yet been charged with anything else.
The authorities in the courtroom were not able to contain the father who kept going after the man accused of killing his son.
