A Wisconsin couple whose 15-year-old son died after they forced him to join a 40-day fast in search of a blessing from God could now spend the next 25 years in prison for their negligence. The Reedsburg Police Department in Wisconsin said in a statement Monday that Kehinde S. Omosebi, 49, walked into the department at about 4 p.m. Sunday to report the death of his son, Ayanfe O. Omosebi.

When police got to the family home, which was padlocked from the inside, they found Ayanfe’s emaciated corpse.
