Christo¬≠pher Gre¬≠gor, 32, is on tri¬≠al for the first-degree mur¬≠der and child endan¬≠ger¬≠ment of his 6‚ÄĎyear-old son, Corey Micciolo.

Pros­e­cu­tors allege that on April 2, 2021, Gre­gor forced Corey to run on a tread­mill at extreme­ly high speeds and high incline, even pick­ing him up and plac­ing him back on the machine after he fell sev­er­al times. Sur­veil­lance footage from Gre­gor’s home report­ed­ly shows this incident.

A few weeks lat¬≠er on April 2nd, Corey began com¬≠plain¬≠ing of nau¬≠sea and short¬≠ness of breath at Gre¬≠gor‚Äôs home. Gre¬≠gor took Corey to the hos¬≠pi¬≠tal but he went into seizures upon arrival and died an hour later.

An autop­sy was ini­tial­ly unde­ter­mined on the cause of death. But in Sep­tem­ber 2021, after review­ing the case, foren­sic pathol­o­gist Dr. Thomas Andrew deter­mined the cause of death was blunt impact injury to the chest and abdomen, with lac­er­a­tions to the heart and liv­er. The man­ner of death was ruled a homicide.

Gre¬≠gor‚Äôs defense attor¬≠ney Mario Gal¬≠luc¬≠ci claims Corey died of a ‚Äúrapid¬≠ly spread¬≠ing infec¬≠tion‚ÄĚ like pneu¬≠mo¬≠nia. But mul¬≠ti¬≠ple med¬≠ical experts have refut¬≠ed this claim. Pedi¬≠atric infec¬≠tious dis¬≠ease expert Dr. Anat Fein¬≠gold found no evi¬≠dence of any pre-exist¬≠ing infection.

The tri¬≠al has seen emo¬≠tion¬≠al tes¬≠ti¬≠mo¬≠ny from Corey‚Äôs moth¬≠er Bre¬≠an¬≠na Mic¬≠ci¬≠o¬≠lo, who says she report¬≠ed Gre¬≠gor over 100 times to child pro¬≠tec¬≠tive ser¬≠vices with no action tak¬≠en. Clos¬≠ing argu¬≠ments are set to begin this week in what is an incred¬≠i¬≠bly trag¬≠ic case of alleged child abuse.
