We have a horrific story from the UK about a father who stabbed his three-week son to death then tried to kill the mother. Chronicle Live reported on the incident.
The father, Denis Beytula, has been recommended for a 23-year minimum sentence for his actions. Before the child’s birth, he told people that if he couldn’t be a good father he’d kill the child. Three weeks after his baby’s birth, that came true.
Even before this happened, the father was violent to the mother on the day they came back from the hospital. he choked her and was convinced she was planning to leave him. He threatened both their lives.
Later, she refused a sexual advance to take care of the child. The father took a kitchen knife and threatened to kill the mother with it. The next morning, the father acted like nothing had happened.
That afternoon, he cut himself intentionally to intimidate the mother with the same knife. Then he went to the child’s room to dress his wound. The mother tried to follow, but Denis told her to go away.
As she did, she heard the father stand up. She witnessed him stabbing the child twice. When he noticed she saw him, he stabbed her six times. It’s a miracle she survived.
Strangest of all, as soon as it happened he went outside to call the police. He told them that the mother had been making porn videos and was a cocaine addict. No evidence was found of either. Meanwhile, the mother made her own call to the authorities to explain what happened.
Police tried to save the baby, but he died four days later. The mother also needed emergency surgery. The father pled guilty to the charges.
