This is not just a murder of their child. They left him out to suffer. Can you imagine what thoughts were crossing this poor child's mind in his final hours. He died. Many, many other children do not die, but they experience this type of neglect and violence on a daily basis too. It is incomprehensible to understand how as a society we are supposed to welcome, encourage and nurture poor young souls born to monsters like this. Punishment by death takes two ruthless rouges off the face of the Earth. Unfortunately, it does next to nothing to the countless adults out there raising children by the same school of hard knocks mentality. I can't think of many other stories I have read that are truly this SICK.

That was really extreme. I bet they've handed out other types of cruel punishments in the past. Overnight tied to a tree? There's just no way this was the first time they came up with such cruelty. They literally carried their sorry @zzes to bed that night with their son chained up outside. psychos.

Punishing a child by "killing him/her" for disobedience is wrong and uncalled for!(Are you listening to that, Jerry Hobbs?) These two should get the death penalty for hog tying their teenage son!! I swear to God they MUST DIE!!!!! SO HELP ME THEY MUST DIE!!!!! DEATH TO CHILD ABUSERS!!!!

This child lost his mother to cancer a few years ago, she was said to be a nice woman and a school teacher. I am sure her only concern when dieing was that her children would be well cared for. For the father and stepmother to torture this child and leave him tied to a tree for 18 hrs, is unforgivable. No food or water, that I know of. Bugs and 90 degree temp. that night they went out roller bladeing with the other two children. They should feel his pain, in jail and cry like he did.
