Fundamentalist Christian Parents who let diabetic son starve to death found guilty of first-degree murder | The Independent
This disgusts me so much.
The parents of a 15-year-old boy who died due to untreated diabetes and starvation have been found guilty of first-degree murder. Emil and Rodica Radita isolated and neglected their son Alexandru for years before his eventual death — at which point he was said to be so emaciated that he appeared mummified, a court in Canada heard on Friday. Alexandru, one of the Raditas’ eight children, reportedly weighed less than 37 pounds when he died in 2013 at their home in Calgary, Canada, following months of suffering due to untreated diabetes.
