A Long Island man appeared in court Saturday, on charges that he broke his father’s ribs with a baton and then beat the family dog with a baseball bat.
Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota revealed the grisly details of the killings Thursday and said he will seek the maximum punishment for Laffer if convicted.
Laffer’s Attorney, Mary Beth Abbate, said she expected that four counts of first-degree murder would be added to the charges. She also offered the very first glimpses into Laffer’s psyche.
