SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) A Denison father charged accused of starving his own 12-year-old son to death pleaded guilty in Grayson County district court Monday. John Howard Arndt, 35, was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

Michael Elzy: that's a damn shame to starve a child like that they should receive the max sentence

Renewal: How can that woman sit there smiling?

Tresea Hebert: And now we get to pay for them to eat 3 meals a day. They should not have the right to live.

Jennifer Huffman: they need to suffer and die the way they made their child what happened to the child's school district and others they didn't notice...the whole system let this poor angel down

Marilynn Linda Reeves: I want to know why both did not get the Death Penalty?

THAT was DUMB of the parents and I can't understand why they thought they were gonna get away and if I was a judge I'd sentence both to death AND MORE , DEATH SENTENCE MAKE IT STARVATION

I agree but worse to the power of three.Children , "orphan and widows" as mentioned in the Good book , are the helpless and to be hurt by the ones who should be the first help is .....Hell.

Both mom and dad needs to be fed. To a bunch of hungry pigs. Alive of course. Tied up first.

Yes they may go to jail but will get feed unlike the child. Send them to prison without food or water and see how long they last.

Thank Goodness both were sentenced!!!! Usually the father/step father/boyF. only get punishment and not the "Mother". I hope both have a HELL of a time while serving. I can't imagine what the poor boy went through. I wake up starving in the morning or if I skip a meal, imagine STARVING a child EVERY meal every day!! Man. This is HORRIBLE!!!! :(

why did one parent get 45 and one 50 either one is not long enough but still makes no sense
David Hamilton - 07-16
Shouldn’t feed either damn one of them and see how long they last? Penalty is not severe enough for either one of them. Scum of the earth!
