South Korean mum addicted to computer games 'kills' 3-year-old son
Sydney, Dec 24 (ANI): A South Korean mother, who is addicted to computer games, has been arrested for allegedly killing her three-year-old son while she was tired from playing on Internet.
Police in the midwestern city of Cheonan said that Kim, 27, played online games for about 10 hours a day, adding her neighbours described her house as "like a trash site" where her two children were left crying for hours.
They said that Kim, who also has a one-year-old son, beat the three-year-old and strangled him after he disturbed her by urinating on the floor and crying.
"She said she was so mad at him because she was about to take some rest after playing online games for four hours in the morning," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted a city police spokesman as saying, describing the woman as addicted to game-playing.
Kim left the boy's body in the house for three days and her in-laws reported the death to police.
She mostly played online card games and those involving the raising of virtual pets, the spokesman said, adding she had no history of mental disorder. (ANI)
