Police in Phoenix say the death of Ame Deal, 10, is "one of the worst we have ever seen," the Arizona Republic reports. The girl allegedly was locked in a footlocker as punishment for taking a popsicle.
Before she was locked in, she was forced to spend many minutes doing backbends and other exercises, and running in the backyard despite the summer heat.
On other occasions, police allege, as punishment for failing to pick up a dog's fecal matter, the fecal matter was rubbed on Ame's face and she was forced to eat it.
