SAO PAULO (AP) - Doctors will remove four of the five sewing
needles remaining in the body of a 2-year-old Brazilian boy, who
was stuck by his stepfather in an alleged plot to spite his wife.

Ana Neri Hospital spokeswoman Susy Moreno says doctors will
operate to remove needles from the boy's underarm, thorax, abdomen
and thigh.

Of 31 needles found in the toddler's body, only one will be left
after Monday's surgery, doctors said. A needle in the boy's pubic
bone does not cause any danger to his life.

Police have formally accused the boy's stepfather, Roberto
Carlos Magalhaes, and his lover of attempted murder for allegedly
sticking the needles.

Magalhaes told Globo TV last year he wanted to kill the child to
spite his wife, with whom he fought a lot.
