WAYNESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio landlord charged with whipping an adult tenant with a belt on his buttocks for falling behind on his rent has been accused of whipping another man with a belt and a paddle.

In a lawsuit filed in southwestern Ohio's Warren County on Tuesday, Mark Neace accuses Ronald Kronenberger of spanking him on four occasions while Neace worked as a volunteer in Kronenberger's grocery store in Waynesville.

The lawsuit, which describes Neace as mentally disabled, says the whippings caused him "severe emotional distress."

Kronenberger's attorney, Lawrence Greger, declined to comment.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

In January, the 53-year-old Kronenberger was charged with hitting a former tenant on the buttocks with a belt in a dispute over more than $2,000 in overdue rent.
