LA PAZ, BOLIVIA: An evil father was jailed for 60 years for killing his two children by poisoning them. The father lured them by taking them shopping as he took the kids from his former partner's home and took them back to his house. The dad reportedly killed his children as he was jealous of the fact that his ex-wife had met someone new. The incident took place in March in the Bolivian city of La Paz where he was found guilty of committing this heinous crime.

The criminal court in La Paz heard that Javier Hernandez Rojano, 47, told his ex-wife that he wanted to buy his children, aged seven and four, new shoes. He told the court how he carried out the crime out of "jealousy" and how his ex-wife had found someone new that made him execute the crime and kill his children by poisoning them. He chose the backyard of his home to kill his children as he injected the food item with liquid insecticide before feeding it to them. Rojano even took the poisoned yogurt himself in attempted suicide but it did not have the same reaction as it did on the young ones.

After consuming the toxic yogurt, Rojano experienced severe stomach cramps and somehow managed to reach the police station in his wimpy condition. As he received immediate medical attention, he admitted to committing the crime. For several weeks he was admitted to the extensive care unit of the hospital where he apologized to his family for killing his children after recovering.

Chicago police have added more than 1,000 officers to the streets over the Memorial Day weekend, hoping to put a dent in crime, during what is typically one of the more violent weekends of the year. In 2016, 6 people were killed and another 65 were wounded by gun violence over the Memorial Day weekend.

As per The Sun, the law enforcement official said, "The father gave the victims insecticide after a fit of jealousy because his former partner and mother of the minors had a relationship with another person." Soon protests broke out in the city demanding justice for the deceased kids by the teachers of the Technical Agricultural Education Institute. They were also supported and joined by the students of that region in the fight against this monstrous crime that needed immediate delivery of justice. Head of the Institute, Francisco Daza said, “For us, it is very painful because the children went to the institute’s primary school.” He further added, “We reject all forms of violence against children.”
