The Devil Made Me Do It

A 35-year-old suburban Detroit man who says he was watching wrestling on TV when the devil told him to choke his 3-year-old stepson has been charged with attempted murder. Randall Caballero of Warren also faces first-degree child abuse after his arraignment Tuesday in Macomb County Circuit Court. He remains held at the Macomb County Jail on a $1 million bond. Court officials didn’t know if Caballero had a lawyer.

Detective Lt. Michael Torey tells The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that Caballero took the boy outside about 10 p.m. Friday, choked him, then told neighbors he’d killed his son.┬áPolice found the boy along the street, crying and dressed only in pants. He was released from a hospital after being treated for hypothermia.
