Couple Arrested For Starving Baby To Feed Virtual Daughter
March 5, 2010
S. Korea (ChattahBox) A 41-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman have been arrested in the death of their 3-month-old daughter, who police say they allowed to starve to death while they spent their time nurturing a virtual daughter in a game.
The unnamed couple reported their daughter dead five months ago, and an autopsy showed the infant had suffered from long-term malnutrition.
An investigation, which led to the arrest of the parents this week, showed that the two only fed her once a day, in between 12-hour periods spent playing Prius Online at a local Internet Cafe.
The two were obsessed with the care of their ‘virtual daughter’ Anima, who they spent their time with as their baby passed away.
The two are facing murder charges.
