ESCAMBIA COUNTY, FLORIDA – Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan detailed the allegations that Andrew Bennett Ross Celaius, 37, is facing including aggravated child abuse and more.

During a press conference last week, Sheriff Morgan discussed the charges including the suspect filming himself torturing a 2-year-old baby girl over and over as she slept in her bassinet as her mother slept in another room.

“It’s the stuff that nightmares are made of,” said Sheriff Morgan.

Sheriff Morgan said the abuse was discovered when the child’s mother took her to the doctor for what she believed to be ringworm, but which the hospital determined to be burns resulting from likely abuse.

Authorities then investigated, including searching the home, turning up the evidence.

In the press conference, Chief Deputy Chip Simmons described the abuse as systematic “torture.”

“What really strikes you is the fact that it is dark, the child is sleeping, the door opens and this guy throws a half-empty bottle right into the bed to wake the child up,” he said, describing one of the incidents on tape.

As the New York Daily News notes of the press conference, Simmons “said one of the more disturbing videos shows the child being shocked with a dog collar as she shrieks in pain. Ross-Celaius also allegedly used a butane lighter to burn the girl — either with the flame or by heating the end and pressing it to her skin.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement for over 30 years and when I looked at the evidence that we saw here, me and a number of my staff were speechless,” said Simmons.
