Girl forced to drink 2 liters of soda dies; couple charged

A couple in Tennessee has been charged with their daughter’s murder after a 25-month investigation.

Alexa Linboom, 5, died in January of 2012.

Police say her father and stepmother forced her to drink more than two liters of grape soda and water in less than two hours as punishment for sipping some of her stepmother’s drink.

Doctors say the massive amount of fluids caused her brain to swell and rupture.

Randall and Mary Vaughn will appear in court Friday.

Police say Alexa was living with her father for just three months because of neglect at her other home.

    I’m willing to bet that whoever had custody of the girl before wouldn’t have done something so cruel and heartless to her like her so called father did. Absolutely terrible! Why in the hell did this take a 25 month investigation?! Wish I could be on that jury!!

    These new age parents need parenting classes. If you don't want kids put them up for adoption. It's just that simple. This is a shame!

    If ever there were a death penalty case this is it. As a matter of fact this case makes me personally wish that we could execute via waterboarding.
