The father of a murdered Idaho boy has reportedly pleaded guilty to first-degree murder. Authorities say Erik Emmanuel Osuna31 years old, gave permission to his wife Monique Desiree Osuna29 years old, who admits she abused her son Erik Emrik Osuna9. Theo KTVB.
Monique Osuna, stepmother, confessed February 1st degree murder. She admitted hitting Emrik with metal spoons, hands and pans to force him to continue exercising. She later admitted to forcing the boy to participate in physical activities to the point of torture.
“Every day, I will talk more than 12 hours a day, or about where to live,” Police Detective Meridian Matthew Ferronato testified before. “Sometimes it will continue, more than 20 hours of continuous exercise.”
Monique Osuna understands abusive behavior as “disciplinary” behavior that gets out of hand.
The nanny’s camera also showed Monique beating the child for weeks – and even pulling his hair and making him sleep in the closet.
“Unfortunately, my discipline towards him escalated,” Monique wrote. “Before I knew it, I abused him, and that abuse killed him.”
However, Erika Osuna is accused of doing nothing – and indeed facilitating the abuse. The video reportedly shows an instance in which Emrik passed out after hours of exercise, but instead his father just approached him to wake him up and tell him to keep going.
Erik, who weighs 44 pounds, stayed for hours on September 1, 2020 after Monique allegedly hit him with a dog leash. He started to get hungover. Monique made him stand on one leg and then let him lie on the floor. Emrik got worse. Erik texted Monique around 5 p.m. that they should take him to the ER, authorities said. Even so, neither of the parents sought medical attention until Emrik died at 9:40 p.m. and Erik called 911. Even then, the father asked someone else to remove the baby’s camera. samples before first responders arrived, authorities said.
