FIENDS KILL BED-WETTER WITH WATER!
Pair forces boy to down massive chugs of H2O
ACRUEL Colorado couple killed their 11-year-old kid by demanding the boy drink almost six pints of water in four hours because he had wet his bed, cops claim.
The father of Zachary Sabin — Ryan Sabin, 41, and his 42-yearold wife, Tara — are being held in El Paso County Jail without bail and are facing charges of child abuse. Ryan also faces firstdegree murder charges.
According to a coroner’s report, Zachary died of forced water intoxication after being made to ingest the massive amount of H2O without eating.
The report also states before his death, Zachary had vomited and was later found dead in his bed by his dad with blood and foam around his mouth.
The child had bruises on his head, arms and shin, and at the time of his death, he was wearing a soaked diaper, authorities say.
Tara told cops the fifth-grader suffered from a hereditary uri
nary disorder that caused him to wet the bed, according to an arrest affidavit.
Cops say the couple claimed the boy’s condition required him to drink at least 64 ounces of water daily.
But the night before his death, the affidavit states Ryan ordered Zachary to “chug the water” when the boy was simply sipping.
The report also says the depraved dad admitted to kicking his kid’s leg twice.
Zachary’s heartbroken mom, Angela Tuetken, says of her late son, “He was a very gentle soul.”
