DALLAS (AP) — A 10-year-old Dallas-area boy who died of dehydration after his father and stepmother kept water from him was being punished for wetting the bed, authorities say.
The boy, Johnathan James died July 25 after water was kept from him for five days while temperatures soared to 100 degrees or more each day, police said. The boy's dad, Michael Ray James, and stepmother, Tina Alberson, both 42, were jailed after being charged Thursday with injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

In another board I read that he was punished because "his father and step-mother thought he took guitar parts from their step-brother"
These are the stepfather and mother:
Police musta beat her because her face is all swollen.
“Police musta beat her because her face is all swollen.”
The old man looks like he came in second in a hammer fight, too. What a pair.
The headline is ridiculous. You cannot punish a dead child. They murdered him, what they did was not punishment.
I would put this down to pure, sadistic homicide on top of torture. Both those people need lethal injection.
Even leaving a child in an non-air conditioned room can be seen as much the same as leaving them unattended in a hot car. Easily a felony.
Let me guess the kids are on the verge of starvation.
They use to put crazy people in asylums and now we give them welfare
I agree. I can remember when newspaper people were among the most meticulous concerning their trade. More proof of the dumbing down of America.
5 days and they didnt let him have a drink? poor guy
They look like rejects from the Roseanne Barr show.
The media is also constantly talking about the need to stay cool, stay hydrated, and so forth.
I find it really difficult to believe that these two cretins did not know they were causing this poor child harm.
These two PIGS should HAVE to suffer from what that poor child went through for several days! Dying of dehydration is an awful, excruciatingly painful death.
I hope the “helpful” inmates let them know exactly how they feel about those who abuse children.
That's too good for them....they need to spend the rest of their life in excruciating pain....I suggest a pair of pliers and a blowtorch.
“Both those people need lethal injection.”
No, they need to be locked in wooden caskets, set out in the sun for a week, then bury the caskets.
Fortunately this happened in Texas. These murderers won’t get off with a pat on the head.
Two words, "Andrea Yates."
Sorry in-bred bas**rds
Just push them to the nearest wall,take 3 steps back and empty your weapon into them.
This woman should be denied food because she’s overweight. I wonder how she would like that, and the scumbag nest to her needs to go to prison so he can meet BUBBA. These are not parents, they are trash.
God bless and keep that poor child.
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon in abuse cases for the step child to suffer. It’s as though the step-parent doesn’t want to spend resources on him.
Calling the pair trash, or white trash, would be a blatant insult to the loads of refuse trucks.
Even Bubba wouldn't touch that.
But were BOTH of them, “step”? This is wickedness, not neglect.
It is wickedness.
My guess is that the step-son was the mother’s child. It is surprising what mistreatment many women will allow upon their children just so they have a man.
Bet that fat boy’d squeal reeeeeeeal loud...;)
some ‘tarded hick would have reeeeeeeeal fun with him...
Ok. The real world is not “Deliverance.” But in TX it’s hard to see how he’d escape death row for this. He doesn’t look like he can afford the lawyerpower of a Yates.
Even Bubba wouldn’t touch that./
LOL I wouldn’t blame him. These two have a nice millstone around their neck but they won’t know it til they checkout. My heart breaks for that child.
That is so true, it always amazes me. Especially when the “man” has no job and sucks up her welfare check and does little else.
Women could easily run the world if they wised up. Why would they let God’s Beta version push them around?
Bet that fat boyd squeal reeeeeeeal loud...;)
I wonder who we can get to play the banjo while he crawls on all fours.
Looks more like her neck threw up.
What happened to this poor defenseless child is gut wrenching. I am glad that so many of the people commenting on the yahoo site get it. It is just unfortunate that they will never see the horror Terri Schaivo endured in her death as the exact same thing.
Praying for the soul of the child is easy. We know he is with God. Praying for the monsters who are responsible for his death is going to be a test of my faith. But prayers are most needed for his brother who felt he could do nothing to save him. That child is in for a terrible future if someone does not intervene. He will never be able to outrun the guilt even though it is not his fault in the least.
Those would be mighty pretty curtains in the Eggshell White House. :)
This child had no one else to look in on him’
She got the “crazier than a peach orchard bore” verdict. She’s been in the asylum but she is close to getting out and that is something I can’t stand the thought of. She needs to stay in there forever! I would have tied up that jury until I got MY verdict..GUILTY of 5 cold-blooded murders and she’d no longer be with us right now. I’d throw that idiot husband of hers at the time in prison for being an idiotic moron!
Yates should have won the Oscar for putting on that crazy act.
If Casey Anthony looked like this woman she would be in jail
It all went to hell when reporters became journalists and teachers became educators.
I swear I’ve seen those two in an early South Park called “fat farm” where Eric is sent away to lose weight. The parents of one of the camp kids.
Dysfunctional families destroy the children.
Destroy morality in the public schools....destroy the concept of “good and evil”—in fact, do better....make evil, good.....like Homosexual acts are good.....Make divorce easy. Promote dysfunction in all tv programming. Confuse children about the roles of male and female—destroy logic and reasoning.
Reward all dysfunction by giving welfare checks so the dysfunctional can have time to reproduce. Make hard working responsible producers have no time for families or procreation. Make them think strangers can instill values and morality into their godless children. Keep up the 24/7 indoctrination mills.
Voila—no biological connections, no morality and you get parents actually killing their own young.....the slippery slope of the abortion reasoning.
This should be no surprise to anyone who understands biological connection and child development and the evils of socialism/Marxism. It ends the same every time.
“Jonathan and his twin brother Joseph were spending the summer with their biological father because of a court ordered custody arrangement. But the boys were reluctant to go, she said.”
“’I wish I had snuck him some water,’”
“He apparently watched Jonathan collapse and continues to relive the moment he lost his twin.”
This story is one of the most pitiful I have ever heard. These two should simply be put down like rabid dogs. It would be a mercy. (Although I confess, I’d rather do to them what they did to the little boy.)
Good point. I think you're right.
Gee, my wife must have the same genes as these misfits. She’s keeping the drinking water locked in MY car,to which she has taken MY key and which she now uses as HER own.
At least I have creek water I can boil to drink.
I grew out of bedwetting. Praying in my sleep when the terrors were happening cured them to. Body is paralyzed during REM sleep. Not much a kid can do. Poor hild. Those people are hideous, ignorant, and pure evil.
Just deny water to the pair of scumbags,permanently.
I bet they voted for Obama
Nothing quite angers me as much as the torture/murder of a child. I’m very squeamish but I’d not have a problem getting retribution for that child with my own two hands. But vengeance is the Lord’s and He loves the little children, praise God.
omg that is heartbreaking! That poor little boy, who lost a twin of all things, is going to need a LOT of therapy. all the guilt he will have but he was too young to know his brother would die... This is utterly sad. I want to beat the crap out of those people.
