Korean parents allow child to die of malnutrition due to raising a baby on a video game

Essentially these South Korean parents are being sentenced to about 5 years in prison because they allowed their baby to die of malnutrition.  The baby died when they were at an all night session at an internet cafe.  They would put the child to bed and then go to the internet cafe for 10 hours.  The child died at only a few months and weighed less at the time of death than she did at birth.

“A South Korean couple whose three-month-old daughter died of malnutrition while they were raising a virtual child in an online game pleaded guilty to negligent homicide on Friday.”
