Parents Remain in Custody Over Vinegar Poisoning

The parents of a girl poisoned with vinegar will remain in custody until a verdict is reached.

After nearly one and a half years in detention, the court's decision is expected on July 5. The case is unusual and complex, with the prosecution asserting there is no other explanation for the poisoning.

Despite surviving and now living a better life, the girl had severe injuries when first admitted to the hospital.

Her parents were initially sentenced to eight years in prison.
