I notice that the husband/father is a member of the military. I hope they screw him out of any benefits he would get from the government/military, even if he did honorable service. He led a totally dishonoable life. I hope they would be both put into jail but apparently in that country, they don't like to do that, even where a child was killed.
I can understand and know of circumstances where the mental situation of a parent would cause them to kill a badly handicapped child. Apparently this couple seems to have as drug/alcohol problems. If this were to happen in the USA, it would also get a lot of 'tabloid' attention as well. It isn't something only to be found in the UK.
