The authorities have accused a couple of turbines of beating, strangling and punishing their children aged between two and 29 years. The prosecution did not claim that the two-year-old child had been tortured, and alleged that the parents had deprived their children of drinking water and merely provided them with a little food within a strict time frame

Authorities said the 29-year-old older brother weighed only 82 pounds (37 kg), according to prosecutors, while all other children were severely wasting and all seemed younger than their actual age
