A man admitted in Bronx court yesterday that he beat his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter to death with a belt when she refused to do her ABC’s — a form of discipline they call “pow-pow.”
Leon Walters, 25, and girlfriend Sherika Stewart, 22, were slapped with charges of assault and reckless endangerment for the death of Ahyna Louis-Hardy in their Riverdale apartment on Monday.
Both admitted that they used a belt on the girl, law-enforcement sources said.
Walters’ lawyer said in court that he did not directly cause the child’s death.
The couple told cops that in their culture, children get “pow-pow” if they disobey, authorities said yesterday.
