“Christian” Couple Kill 13 Year Old Girl Using “Train Up” Methods Endorsed By Focus On The Family

Carri and Larry Williams, devout “Evangelical Christians” were arrested on charges of homicide by abuse in connection with the death of their adoptive daughter, 13-year-old Hana Grace-Rose Williams. They were also charged with assault of a child in the first degree in connection with the treatment of Hana’s brother, whom they’d also adopted.

Hana died from “a culmination of chronic starvation caused by a parent’s intentional food restriction, severe neglect, physical and emotional abuse and stunning endangerment.” Investigators found Hana had been put in a dark closet for discipline and forced to sleep outside in a barn. When she was locked in the closet, one person told authorities, the parents played the Bible on tape and Christian music. And Hana was routinely beaten and often not fed for one or two days at a time.

The Williams used a book entitled ‘To Train a Child Up,” which included punishment techniques the Williams’ mimicked.

Many other child abuse cases have been linked to the book and the methods across the country.”
