Couple Charged After His Daughter Died From Drinking Soda

An East Tennessee couple faces a murder charge, accused of forcing the man's 5-year-old daughter to drink more than 2 liters of grape soda and water, causing her brain to swell and rupture, authorities said.

According to the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office and the autopsy report, Alexa Linboom was brought in to the emergency room on Jan. 1, 2012, by her father, Randall Vaughn, and his wife, Mary Vaughn.

An investigation revealed the girl had been forced to drink approximately 2.4 liters of water and soda over one to two hours as punishment.

I'd like to know more details behind that investigation.

Just a general response to these sorts of cases: Can we please bring back the stockades? Not only that but allow parents (real parents, not the mere genetic contributers this type of scum represents) can come up one at a time and just blast them right in the face. Maybe $10 will buy you a kick.

I'm almost certain that if these people could think, they wouldn't have ended up as parents the first place.

It's exceptionally scary that such twisted individuals found each other and mated. Who the hell considers drinking mad amounts to be punishment? Who knows what else the poor baby had to endure.

Sick.
