    Bruce and Deborah Leonard have been charged with first-degree manslaughter in the death of their 19-year-old son Lucas Leonard. Four other members of the Word of Life Church in New Hartford, N.Y. are also charged in connection with the man's death. (AP)
    The red brick building is quiet now, though a sign on the door still tells visitors: “Welcome to Word of Life.” Inside one room of the former schoolhouse, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard, there is “cold coffee still in Styrofoam cups and a half-eaten pork sandwich sitting on a counter.” In another, according to the newspaper, a notebook is open, showing what appears to be sermon notes.

    Some who live near the mysterious Word of Life Church near New Hartford, N.Y., call it a “cult,” telling the Syracuse Post-Standard that they often hear members singing and chanting in the middle of the night. The men, they say, walk around in “long, black trenchcoats.”

    “There was just a really weird vibe about the place,” a former neighbor, Adriane Hectus, told the Utica Observer-Dispatch.

    It was inside the building where, police said, a couple allegedly beat one of their teenage sons to death and seriously injured another, with help from parishioners.

    New Hartford Police Chief Michael Inserra told reporters Wednesday that following a church service on Sunday night, 19-year-old Lucas Leonard and his brother, 17-year-old Christopher Leonard, were forced to sit through what parishioners called a “counseling session” that turned violent. For hours, the teens were physically punished “in hopes that each would confess to prior sins and ask for forgiveness,” Inserra said.

    Their mother’s attorney now claims she was too “meek and timid” to stop it.

    As a result of the beating, Lucas Leonard was pronounced dead Monday at a nearby hospital, sustaining blows to his abdomen, back, genitals and thighs, police said. Inserra said autopsy results showed contusions to his torso and extremities.

    His brother, Christopher Leonard, remains hospitalized in serious condition.

    Their parents, Bruce Leonard, 65, and Deborah Leonard, 59, from Clayville, were charged with first-degree manslaughter, Inserra said at a news conference Wednesday. The two are being held in Oneida County Jailon $100,000 bail. Four fellow church members were charged with second-degree assault and are being held on $50,000 bail. Police have not given a possible motive for the attack.

    Hey, it looks like we finally found a few Christians who could actually benefit from the imposition of sharia law. ;)

    Can you imagine? I get homicidal when my son tells me one of his classmates took his Doritos at lunch.

    Except for the "half-eaten pork sandwich sitting on a counter.”
