In a chilling courtroom revelation, video evidence has been presented showing Christopher Gregor, 31, accused of murder, subjecting his 6-year-old son, Corey Micciolo, to a grueling and dangerous treadmill workout as a form of punishment for the child’s weight.

This footage happened just weeks before the boy tragically died from injuries that prosecutors believe were linked to ongoing abuse.

Christopher Gregor was seen in court on Tuesday, facing charges that could lead to a life sentence if he is found guilty of the first-degree murder of his son in 2021. He is also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Christopher Gregor was seen crying in court.

Court TV disclosed the horrifying details, noting that surveillance video from the gym in Gregor’s apartment complex captured the incident on March 20, 2021.

The footage showed young Corey struggling to keep up with the increasing speed of the treadmill, stumbling and falling several times. Gregor appeared to be unrelenting, even resorting to grabbing the child roughly and biting his head at one point.

Here’s the video of Bre Micciolo, the boy’s mother, in tears as she watched the horrific footage:

On April 2, Gregor brought Corey to the hospital, claiming the boy had woken up from a nap in a disoriented state, with symptoms including stumbling, slurred speech, nausea, and difficulty breathing. After a CT scan was performed at the hospital, Corey suffered seizures and, despite attempts to save him, passed away.

The autopsy conducted by Dr. Dante Ragusa on April 3 revealed blunt force injuries with cardiac and liver contusions, along with acute inflammation and sepsis. Initially, the manner of death was listed as “undetermined.”

Months later, a review by consulting forensic pathologist Dr. Thomas Andrew led to the classification of the death as a homicide. Dr. Andrew’s findings suggested that the child experienced chronic abuse and had sustained acute traumatic injuries to his heart and other organs hours before his death.

Gregor had been initially arrested on July 7 for the incident involving the treadmill, but was released due to New Jersey’s Bail Reform policies. He was arrested again for his son’s murder on March 9, 2022.

Gregor faces separate charges for the two incidents. The treadmill episode led to a charge of child endangerment, while Corey’s death due to blunt force trauma resulted in Gregor being accused of causing serious bodily injury that led to the child’s death.

The defense has introduced a different narrative, with their own consulting forensic pathologist deeming Corey’s death “natural,” attributing it to “complications from pneumonia.” Defense attorney Mario Gallucci shared this statement with Court TV.

Bre Micciolo was the first witness to take the stand during child custody murder trial.
