Nicholas KernechelNORRISTOWN, PA – A horrific case of child abuse is being reported out of Pennsylvania, where a man has been accused of beating his girlfriend’s 4-year-old autistic son and forcibly pulling out three of the boy’s teeth.

Police were notified in July, when the boy’s mother brought him to police with “severe facial and dental injuries” and handed them a bag that contained three of the boy’s teeth.

“The teeth were bloody but intact, from the tooth through the top of the root,” authorities said in a statement.

According to the woman, she had left her son with her live-in boyfriend, 27-year-old Nicholas Kernechel, while she went out with friends for a couple of hours. The following morning she found her son in his room “asleep on the floor, lying on top of dried blood.”

She found her son was missing three upper teeth, had an extremely swollen upper lip, a bloody upper gum line and bruises all over his face. The boy told his mother that Kernechel was responsible for his injuries and that he was not nice.

According to the criminal complaint, the boy was taken to the hospital where a medical examination indicated that the poor kid’s “teeth were pulled out.” The report does not say how the teeth were extracted.

When questioned, Kernechel first told officers he had no idea how the boy was injured. He would later change his story and say that he had picked the boy up to take him to the bathroom when the boy slipped out of his arms and face-planted a nightstand. Kernechel says he didn’t treat the injury and instead put the boy back in his bed where he cried for about five minutes.

Kernechel was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and related offenses. He’s currently in jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail. His attorney is calling the entire thing an “unfortunate accident” and says he will prove that in court.

During their investigation, police found photos taken in the months before this latest incident that showed what appeared to be a bite mark on the boy’s right upper arm and bruises on the side of his head and cheek.
