Couple Put Baby Son in Oven & Fed Him Cigarette Butts


A father who killed his 2-year-old son by suffocating him inside a bin has been jailed; courts heard he and his wife abused the boy constantly, putting him in an oven and turning it on, and placing him in a washing machine.

Courts heard that the Tokyo couple, both 35, routinely abused their 2-year-old son.

The father on at least one occasion placed the boy in the oven and turned it on “because he was noisy”; on another occasion he put the child in a washing machine.

The child’s mother was no better; the court heard that she fed the infant cigarette butts “in order to see how intelligent he was,” and participated in or instigated much of the abuse.

The court was also shown communications between the couple in which they referred to their child using language normally reserved for animals.

They were then shown recordings the defendant had himself taken showing the boy tied to a bed and screaming, with judges reportedly grimacing and casting a cold gaze upon him. CCTV footage showed the parents kicking the infant in the stomach when he tried to exit an elevator.

The couple finally put their son in a rubbish bin, closed the lid, put the bin inside a plastic bag and tied the whole thing shut with rubber cord, leaving him in this state on their balcony and in their living room until the evening.

The boy asphyxiated during this ordeal.

The father’s defence countered that “he thought the boy would come out of the rubbish bin on his own if he wanted to, and didn’t realise he would die.” The prosecution called this explanation “unbelievable.” The pair initially told police that he had “climbed into the bin and died.”

In court, the father was questioned on what he thought would happen to his son whilst trapped in the bin, responding “I thought he’d probably just sleep until morning… I didn’t think it was dangerous.”

The mother faces identical charges but is yet to be sentenced; her defence contends “she was influenced” whilst the father’s defence maintains that she was the primary instigator of the abuse.

The prosecution sought a 12 year prison sentence for the father on a variety of charges relating to the lethal confinement, saying “the sorrows of Yui-chan were unfathomable.”

Judges apparently felt this too harsh and passed down a sentence of 11 years, acknowledging his “deep regret.”

The lay judges (quasi-jurors) seemed unimpressed by the verdict they delivered:

“It was very hard looking at that little body. 12 years for that – personally I think they should have gone further.”

“At first I thought it would be 15-18 years.”

“5 years? 10 years? 13 years? How can we amateurs know the difference? It’s hard to grasp in only 4 days.”

“I hope this sends a signal about this kind of abuse.”

    These type of people shouldn't be having kids in the first place, and second, their sentence is to laid back, 12 years? really? You otta put them in an oven and stick it at 50 degrees Celsius for a whole day then then stick them in a washing machine set on energy saver for another whole day, and repeat this for 2 years non-stop and then shoot them in the back of- no in their face, fuck the back of their heads they deserve to see it enter their empty skulls.

    WHAT THE FUCK?! Those motherfuckers don't even deserve to live! Why the fuck did they get only 12 fucking years? KILL THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS!

    Nevermind. I have a better idea. Make those bastards experience close-to-death situations for the rest of their lives. Burn them, cut off their limbs, anything to make them experience pain. Though I still don't feel that it will be enough to atone for what they did.

    Disgusting. Just fucking disgusting.

    Why did they even have the fucking baby? This story makes zero sense to me, it's natural instinct for any animal to want to propagate the species; are these two dumber than animals?

    Isn't it when the cub is not theirs or is defective?

    In the case of humans, if they didn't want the kid, they could have just put him for adoption. Yet they kept the child, tortured him and ultimately killed him.

    That usually is the case, but enough food/water also plays a role. Individual survival comes first over propagation.

    Both parents should have gotten 1 year locked upside a large leaf collector trash bag which was sealed. People treating people like dogs or worse than dogs is all too common everywhere, EveryWhere.

    I, too, find even the suggestion of 15-18 years incredibly slim. I don't know much about Japan's laws, but I'm sure this would be met with lifelong imprisonment in Europe and the death penalty in some places in America.

    alright to all those idiots saying what should be done to the couple. Are you fucken stupid if the law did that then it is no better than the couple. No matter the crime laws should be followed. In my opinion the couple should not be able to have any more kids and should be in jail for 20 years. Yes the kid suffered a great deal but a life for a life does not apply here.

    Are you an idiot Anon? Do you even know how laws are created? "The Law is the Law" is the single most bullshit argument I've ever heard. Its good to follow the law, but there are times when the law just isn't good enough.

    People make laws, and with human flaw comes stupid law, and with luck, some of these stupid laws actually get changed for the better. The laws exist to create order, but when there is no order, then it is a failed law.

    People in the US get 25 years for dating someone who is 17 and a half.

    People in Singapore get 5 years for stealing candy from a little store.

    People in Japan get 12 years for brutally abusing and murdering a child.

    So that means in Japan, brutally abusing and murdering a child is only twice as harmful as stealing a candy from a store, and significantly harmless compared to dating a 17 and a half year old?

    In America, you get 25 years for having a relationship with someone who is 17 and a half.

    In Singapore, stealing a piece of candy from a store will land you 5 years.

    In Japan, you get 12 years for brutally abusing and murdering your own children.

    In this comparison, in Japan brutally abusing and murdering your own children is just as bad as stealing 2 pieces of candy from a store in Singapore and significantly less harmful than dating someone who is 17 and a half in the US.

    Meanwhile various organisations are throwing all of their might on shutting down hentai companies.

    That makes alot of sense.

    12 years that's too nice for these people.

    Get some duct tape,rope, and some ball gags and place them bound and gagged under a rocket or space shuttle before launch.

    They abused their 2 year child in inhumane ways and they get 12 years normally but now when a person looks at 2D child porn they get sent to jail without a trial and wont get out until they prove they are "safe" for society

    Comment, comment.....And yet abortion is still(?) legal.

    Anyway, if parents really don't want the kid, just put it up for adoption.

    it would only do justice to put them in a rubbish bin, lock it, and toss it into a oven and leave it on for 24 hours.

    srsly, they can only mess with 2D non-existent humans rather than REAL humans that need their protection.

    A death sentence would be too kind to these twisted creatures (I hesitate to call them even sub-human). No, life without the possibility of parole, is the only fitting sentence for those two. But 12 years max, and the judge reduced it to 11? I've seen people dealing marijuana get longer sentences. Sad really, that poor kid.
