The little boy suffered multiple abuse that medical practitioners tagged of child torture. Arthur was fed excessively with salt, deprived of food and forced to stand for 14 hours a day before his death, sleeps in the living room for days. Arthur died after having his head banged multiple times against a hard surface by Tustin.
Investigators say an audio record obtained from the home conveyed Arthurs voice screaming “no one loves me and no one is going to feed me”. The two suspects have denied killing Arthur and other charges connected to child cruelty. Jurors alleges, Tustin would send Hughes voice notes of Arthur crying whenever he is not home and he would reply with messages like “dig Arthur’s grave, take his “c***ing jaw off his shoulders”.

Arthur was transported to Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital, his life support was turned off at about 1am on 17 June.
