A 2-year-old baby boy was strangled to death and thrown in an oven by his grandparents after he “cried too much” while they were babysitting.
His parents Maria, 20, and Dmitry, 25, returned home in the Kuybyshevsky district of Novokuznetsk, Russia, to find only the clothes of their son, Dima.
They discovered his remains dumped outside the house in the snow, according to law enforcement.
The grandparents, aged 52 and 48, were both “heavily drunk” as they became irritated with the little boy’s tears, Plohie Novosti reports.
The grandparents were arrested on suspicion of murder.
