A woman in China was recently sentenced to 10 years in jail for causing the death of her 9-year-old son.
The incident, which happened in January 2018, took place in China’s Zhejiang province when the young boy confessed to his mother that he lost his phone while playing outside.
According to Asia One, after going out to search for the phone, the boy’s mother became angry when they could not find it. Instead of commending him for his honesty, she accused him of lying. She also slapped him before they returned home.
Then, she discovered that her son did not finish his homework either, causing her to get even angrier. She then proceeded to beat her son with a wooden rod for 5 hours later that evening.
As if the beating wasn’t enough, the mother reportedly bound his hands and feet with tape and then stabbed his feet multiple times using a sewing needle.
Throughout the abuse, the boy was only given a few sips of water to drink. After beating her son, the mother carried him to his bedroom, and he reportedly told her, “Mama, I don’t want to see you.” The mother then went to her room to sleep.
The following morning, the mother was shocked to find the 9-year-old motionless on the floor. She tried resuscitating him, but it was already too late. He was later confirmed dead at the scene.
A post-mortem revealed that the boy experienced a hemorrhagic shock and a pulmonary embolism (a blocked artery in the lungs).
During the mother’s court case, it was ruled that she had intentionally caused harm to her son and was given a jail sentence of 10 years.
We’re glad that justice was served, and hope that a case of this nature will not repeat itself in the future.
