Parents attend funeral in handcuffs for toddler who was allegedly abused

EDMONTON - A couple who are charged with starving and abusing their daughter were both in tears during the Edmonton girl's funeral on Saturday.

Sheriffs escorted the girl's parents, who can't be named under child protection laws, in handcuffs into the Al Rashid mosque.

The mother was almost overcome with emotion as she prayed beside the small pink coffin in a room for women, while the father was in tears when the coffin was brought into a room for men.

further down the article... "Paramedics called to their home on May 25 found the girl and her twin sister suffering from injuries and severe malnourishment. Police said they weighed just 13 and 16 pounds.
The surviving girl is now in foster care, as is an older brother, who had also been living in the home but wasn't injured."


Makes me sick!!!

I didn't see in the article the ages of the girls. Does anyone know how old they were?

I didn't see an age given. Just this, " Paramedics called to their home on May 25 found the girl and her twin sister suffering from injuries and severe malnourishment. Police said they weighed just 13 and 16 pounds.

The surviving girl is now in foster care, as is an older brother, who had also been living in the home but wasn't injured."
