A couple were arrested Wednesday in Nagoya for abusing their five-year-old daughter for over half a year in 2008, withholding food to the point she lost consciousness.
Unemployed Hiroshi Ono and his registered nurse wife Shinobu, both 34, allegedly starved their daughter until she lost consciousness. They took her to the hospital in December 2008. At the time she weighed in at seven kilograms, under half the average weight of a girl her age. The pair had reportedly been purposely withholding food from the girl since May 2008. Both parents admit to the charges.© News reports
