Hawaii Reps Introduce ‘Talia’s Law’ To Prevent Child Abuse And Neglect On Military Bases

| November 24, 2015 at 02:06 pm

HONOLULU — Reps. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and Mark Takai (D-Hawaii) introduced federal legislation this week aimed at better protecting children from abuse on military bases.

The proposed law is named after Talia Williams, a 5-year-old who was beaten to death in 2005 by her father, Naeem Williams, then an active-duty infantryman stationed in Hawaii.

The girl’s murder reportedly came after months of torture and abuse by both her father and stepmother, Delilah Williams.

According to Delilah Williams’ court testimony, Talia was denied food for days at a time, duct-taped to a bed and whipped, and kept out of daycare to hide physical signs of her beatings. Naeem Williams’ fatal blow, prosecutors said, left knuckle imprints on the child’s chest.

Oklahoma teacher and her husband arrested for alleged child abuse

| September 8, 2015 at 01:12 pm

child abuse cpiuCYRIL, Okla. — An Oklahoma teacher is behind bars for allegedly abusing her 10-year-old stepson.

Tamara Zeno and her husband, Tony Zeno, are behind bars following child abuse allegations.

Tamara teaches English, speech, and drama at Cyril High School in Caddo County; Cyril Superintendent Jamie Mitchell said Tamara has been a model employee for the past three years.

However, her stepson paints a very different picture of her, alleging she hit him with a golf club.

Police are investigating what happened inside a southwest Oklahoma City home, where a 10-year-old boy was visiting for two months over the summer.

That’s where his father, Tony Zeno, and stepmom, Tamara, live.

The boy actually lives with his mother in Colorado. She says he came home looking thinner, and had horror stories to tell about his stay in Oklahoma.

“Obviously, things that cross the line of what a parent can do as far as disciplining a child,” MSgt. Gary Knight said.

The boy’s mother called police in Colorado.

The boy told investigators Tony Zeno choked him, and Tamara Zeno zip-tied him to a chair and forced him to sleep like that. He said the couple also forced him to swallow peroxide and soap. He even said Tamara hit him with a golf club.

Colorado police started an investigation.

The Oklahoma City police report does not say if there is evidence that matches his story.

“I had no idea there was anything like that, most of the people in the neighborhood seem like really nice people. I’m really shocked,” neighbor Tom Johnson said.

Tony and Tamara Zeno were interviewed Tuesday at police headquarters where officers arrested them.

They’re facing multiple charges, including child abuse and child neglect.

As for the boy, he is safe at home with his mother in Colorado.

Superintendent Mitchell said Tamara is still employed with Cyril Public Schools, and substitutes are covering her classes.

He told us he’ll make a decision about her job there once they learn more from police.
