According to a court affidavit, the DHS workers noticed the children were dirty and having head lice.  The authorities noticed a two-year old boy with a large red mark on his left side of his face.  Two of the five kids told officers they saw the suspect slap the boy while the mother was away.

Licavoli's next court date is April 1st.
