A 3-year-old boy died after his father locked him up in a washing machine and turned in up.
A French father reportedly put his 3-year-old-son into the washing machine as a punishment.
Christophe Champenois, 36, rammed three-year-old Bastien into the device and switched it on, allegedly as punishment for misbehaviour.
Charlene Cotte, the boy’s mother claimed she was busy with her daughter when the incident occurred.
Christophe Champenois, the father, was jailed for 30 years. And his wife, Charlene Cotte was jailed for 12 months. Champenois claimed that the boy drowned while taking bath but the boy’s sister insisted that her father put her brother inside a washing machine.
Daddy put Bastien in the washing machine because he was naughty at school.
A neighbour who came to the apartment to help described the child as “frozen, completely naked. He was all white, limp, practically like a toy.
Investigations revealed that Christophe Champenois often punished his son by locking him up in the cupboard.
