A few months ago, it was reported that the aunt and her husband were arrested for the death of their niece. It was revealed that the 10-year-old girl died from asphyxiation from drowning after her aunt and her uncle reportedly dunked her into a tub of water numerous times. It was further reported that before dunking her into the water, they had tied up her hands and feet so that she could not resist the torture.

During the first trial at the Suwon District Court, new details began to emerge regarding the 10-year-old’s tragic murder, further infuriating the court. The aunt and uncle reportedly had 22 videos on their cellphones of the abuse they projected onto the child. While they previously deleted the videos from their phones, the digital forensics team was able to recover them, which were then used as evidence. It was reported that 14 out of the 22 videos were shared with the court at the first trial.

In further reports made by MBC News, one of the videos showed disturbing footage of the aunt forcing the child to consume dog feces. The aunt can reportedly be heard yelling at the 10-year-old when she hesitates to put the feces into her mouth. In addition to that footage, other videos showcased numerous instances of abuse towards the child, including one particular video that reportedly showed the child standing naked outside in the middle of winter.

During the first trial, the prosecution shared with the court that during the autopsy, “the 10-year-old was covered in bruises on her right shoulder, thighs, and her face.” As the prosecution shared more video footage as evidence, the courtroom audience was reported to have erupted in tears, demanding the death sentence for the couple.

Korean netizens have also expressed their angry and heartbreak, as they demand justice for the 10-year-old girl and her tragic death.
