November 14, 2022

RUSSELLVILLE - Authorities said a Franklin County man physically attacked his daughter after she told her mother she suspects him of having an affair.
Christopher Andrighetti, 39, is charged with first-degree domestic violence-assault, child abuse, and first-degree domestic violence-criminal mischief, according to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
Andrighetti is in the Franklin County Jail on a $200,000 bond, according to jail officials.
Sheriff's deputies arrested him on Nov. 7 after they responded to a call about a father beating his 14-year-old daughter at 100 Town and Country Trailer Park near Russellville, authorities said.
According to a release from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, deputies found two children at the residence, including the 14-year-old.
"The 14-year-old began stating that she had told her mother about a social media account that (Andrighetti) had and that she suspected her father of having an affair," the statement reads. "When (Andrighetti) found this out, he began to violently beat her. He struck the daughter with his fist, a shower curtain rod, a piece of wood, shoved her to the floor, slapped her, and threw items including glass bottles at her."
Andrighetti then told her to clean the mess and she went to the kitchen to get trash bags, authorities said. However, she saw the front door was open and ran to a neighbor's house.
The release also describes the scene.
"On arrival, deputies observed broken beer bottles outside, items that had been recently cut up, a broken Nintendo Switch, and blood droplets outside the mobile home door," it stated. "Deputies forced entry into the residence where they found the home in disarray. The TV had been destroyed, laptops crushed and ripped apart, kitchen items scattered all over the place, children’s bedroom furniture thrown around, and clothes everywhere. Deputies found Christopher Andrighetti hiding in a bedroom closet. Deputies quickly took him into custody. Andrighetti was covered in blood from self-inflicted lacerations to the arms and waist."
