Hide ya kids! A Chinese man is facing years imprisonment after beating his 10-year-old stepson and then severing his hand, all because his mom wasn’t able to afford an apartment they were trying to buy.
According to NY Daily News reports:
A Chinese man hacked off his stepson’s hand with a meat cleaver Tuesday before spitefully throwing it in boiling water so that it could never be reattached, police said.
Cheng Sun, 43, allegedly beat 10-year-old Xiao Jun with a stick after a row about money before grabbing the hatchet and smashing it down on his limb.
He then lobbed the bloody lump of flesh into a pot of water that had been left on the stove refor their evening meal.
The Daily Mirror reports that Cheng had met Xiao’s mom, Xiao Shen, a year ago.
The couple, who lived in a rented apartment in Shenyang with the boy, were looking to buy a flat together.
The mother went to visit relatives to try borrowing some cash when she called Cheng to say there would be a delay with the money coming through.
The crane driver allegedly launched into a furious rage and attacked the boy. Afterward, he reportedly called cops to confess the crime.
He then took Xiao to the hospital, but doctors said it was too swelled-up to be of use and that the boy required an artificial arm. Cheng was arrested and now faces a lengthy prison term.
So sad, but at least the kid still has his life right? Sounds like this guy completely lost it. SMH. People really ain’t isht!
