The crazy part is this wasn’t the first time this epitome of a bad father tried to punish his son using a household appliance!
A French man is facing murder charges for stuffing his 3-year-old son into a washing machine and turning it on, authorities said.
Locals in the city of Meaux, about 25 miles east of Paris, said Christophe Champenois, 33, wanted to punish the toddler, Bastien, for acting out in nursery school on Friday, French newspaper Le Parisien reported.
A neighbor told the newspaper the boy’s mother came to her house after the incident holding her son’s lifeless body, claiming he had tumbled down the stairs.
“He felt like a limp doll,” the neighbor, identified only as Alice, said, according to Agence France Presse.
The boy died of a blow to the head, according to reports.
The boy’s family told Le Parisien that the boy’s father often abused him and had locked him in the washing machine before.
Champenois was charged Sunday with murder of a minor.
The boy’s mother was charged with failing to prevent a crime and failing to help a person in danger, The Telegraph reported.
Both were held without bail.
What the hell?!? Why would you ever put a child in a washing machine, much less turn it on. This sicko needs to be locked up… and tortured.
