Mum burned son, 4, to death in bathtub ‘because she thought he was a cannibal’

A mum murdered her four-year-old son by setting him on fire in a bathtub, police in the US have said.

Neighbours raised the alarm after seeing smoke coming from an apartment in Milwaukee.

Tragically, they found the badly-burned body of little Antonio DiStasio in a bundle of smouldering clothes, at the centre of a horrific crime scene.

The boy’s hands were tied behind his back with seven belts, and a plastic bin bag was over his head.

An open bottle of cooking oil was in the bathroom, police said.

A pet guinea pig was also found drowned in a cage next to the bathtub, CBS58 reports.
