Couple and Teen Son Arrested in Killing of 7-Year-Old Boy Buried in Snow for Not Knowing Bible Verse

Ethan, who weighed 60 pounds, was forced to carry a stump "weighing two-thirds his body weight," according to the document. The teen told detectives he hit Ethan 100 times, sometimes with a belt or a stick, rolled the log across Ethan's chest, stood on his body and head while Ethan was face-down in a puddle, and packed the child under approximately 80 pounds of snow for 20 to 30 minutes, the complaint states.

The child had neither boots nor a coat.

The teen described using a shovel to pile snow on top of Ethan and using the back of the blade to pack it tight around the boy so he "was in his own little of coffin of snow," the document said.

The punishment called "carrying wood" was commonly used by Timothy, authorities said. His teenage son often supervised such disciplinary regimens in which the younger children were ordered to carry logs of specific weight for specific distances, the document said.

1. One of the saddest stories that I've read.

Why were these children put in the care of these relatives?

9. This is just beyond sick.

That poor little boy. What a horrible end. My heart just breaks for him. I hope the people who did this to him pay for it dearly. And I do hope there is a hell so that they can burn in it for eternity.
