    "He saw a vehicle pull up at one of our illegal dumping sites and saw a man get out of a car and take a young child out of the car and proceed to just beat him senselessly," said Harris County Constable Alan Rosen.

    Investigators said Kordarell Williams, 27, used his hands and a belt to hit his girlfriend's 7-year-old son all over his body.

    "He struck this child 62 times, put him in a headlock and knocked him over on numerous occasions with the blows," said Rosen.
