LOCALMom Accused of Abusing 5 Daughters in New Fairfield

Police arrest mother of five girls

Wednesday, Aug 6, 2014 • Updated at 6:39 PM EDT

State police have arrested a New Fairfield woman who is accused of abusing her five daughters.

Alexandra Aucapina, 27, of New Fairfield, appeared in court on Wednesday.

She is accused of hitting her children – ages 2, 4, 5, 8 and 9 – with a belt and burning their hands on the stove as well as in boiling water, according to court documents. Aucapina is originally from Ecuador, police said.

Police also found a blood-covered electrical wire in the closet that had been used to bind the childrens hands and feet, according to court papers.

Police started investigating in February after a friend of one of the victim's went to her own father about the alleged abuse, fearing Aucapina would "do it again," according to police. The father then went to a teacher, who reported the possible abuse. The state Department of Children and Families then notified police.

When police spoke with one of Aucapina's children, the girl initially told police that she was injured and cut her legs by falling while carrying logs, police said. But then she told police that her mother often hit her with a belt and carried out other forms of abuse.

The children have been removed from the home and Aucapina was charged with five counts of risk of injury to a minor, one count of second-degree assault, and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree unlawful restraint and cruelty to a child.

She turned herself in to police on around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
