24-year-old Matthew Langley was skin and bones and only a few days away from death when he was rescued in their home in Sheffield.
According to the reports, his mom and step-father were imprisoned for locking him in the attic for seven months. What made it even worse is that they starved hom.
43-year-old Lorna Hewitt and her husband Craig who’s 42 years of age, were arrested after they were found guilty of falsely imprisoning Matthew in the attic.
When Matthew was rescued, he was extremely dehydrated and only weight six stones. The room where he was locked in was covered both in vomit and feces.
Judge Michael Slater described the mother’s actions towards the autistic son as ‘a grave abuse of trust between a mother and her son’ during the sentencing that was held at the Sheffield Crown Court.
The judge also added, “You were the primary carer for Matthew with all his difficulties and challenges.
“It makes it all the more inexplicable to me that for those seven months you failed to provide him with the support and provision of food and drink that he craved and needed.”
The couple who were arrested denied that they have locked Matthew in their home for seven months. However, after the trial, they were both found guilty.
In addition to that, the couple were also guuilty of causing a vulnerable adult to suffer serious phsyical harm.
The moment he was rescued, Matthew was rushed to the hospital ICU in what they had described as a pitiable state. Furthermore, abrasions on his body indicated that he had been moving around on all corners of the attic.
Due to being locked and imprisoned in thhe attic for seven months, Matthew had suffered a damage to a kidney due too the high sodium levels related to severe dehydration.
Nicholas Campbell said, “His sodium levels were dangerously high. They measured 180.
“hey were so high they could shut down his brain and kill him. Anything above 145, there is a real chance of death.
“The Home Office pathologist examined the injuries and said the abrasions and bruises were consistent in his view with Matthew having been crawling on all fours over objects in his path.”
Aside from feces and vomit, the police also found noted that there were flies and foul smell in the room whre Matthew was found.
Before Matthew was locked in the attic, he weighed 8.5 stones. However, after the tragic imprisonment, his weight dropped into six stones.
The good news is Mr. Campbel said that Matthew has made a good physical recovery all thanks to the medical staffs who had taken care of him and when he was discharged from the hospital he already weighed 8.6 stones.
Meanwhile, Miss Tana Adkin saidd that Mr. Craig Hewitt showed a significant change when he was sentenced in the court.
She said, “He is devastated about what happened to Mathew. He is not a deliberately cruel man in the sense that the courts see and have seen in the past.
“He is not someone that would punish Matthew for his autism.”
However, the judge refuse to believe the characterisations.
“You were complicit equally with wife Lorna Hewitt in care effectively being switched off to any degree for Matthew as he was locked in his room and starved of food.”
“That did not occur by negligence, it did not occur by recklessness. It was a plan between the pair of you.
“I’m quite satisfied that nothing in that household occurred without either you knowing about it or approving of it.”
Judge then address Lorna Hewitt and said, “It is argued on your behalf that you were particularly vulnerable and suggestible at the time.”
“I had the benefit of observing you give evidence in the trial over the course of several days.
“It did not seem to me that you were not capable of standing up for yourself or that you were particularly suggestible. You were both an articulate, temperate and thoughtful witness.”
Pag-aaway ni Baron Geisler at asawa nito, viral! Baron kailangan ulit ipa-rehab ayon sa kanyang misis?
Kasama sa mga naging topic sa “Showbiz Update” vlog ni Ogie Diaz kasama ang kanyang mga kaibigan na sina Mama Loi, Tita Jegs, at Brena ang viral na video ng pag-aaway ng aktor na si Baron Geisler at asawa nitong si Jamie.
Ang nasabing video ay in-upload mismo ni Baron sa kanyang Instagram account ngunit agad ding binura. Dahil dito ay usap-usapan na aksidente lamang itong nai-post at hindi sinadya.
Ayon kay Ogie, makikita sa video ang pagtatalo ng mag-asawa kung saan nakahiga si Baron sa isang kama habang nagsesermon si Jamie.
Kwento niya, “Nasa kama si Baron tapos parang tumatalak ang misis niya at ang sabi, ‘Ano? Gusto mo magpasaklolo? Tawagan mo ‘yung sugar mommy mo. Ano? Gusto mo magpaano sa gwardya?’”
Sa galit ng asawa ni Baron ay binato siya nito ng isang container na mayroon pang laman na sabaw. Kumalat ito sa kanyang binti at sa kama kung saan siya nakahiga.
“Oh my God! What is this? Sinong kailangang i-rehab?” gulat na reaksyon ni Baron sa ginawa ng asawa.
Ayon pa sa kay Ogie Diaz, maaaring ang ibig sabihin dito ng aktor ay hindi siya ang dapat na ibalik sa rehab kundi ang kanyang misis dahil sa ginawa nitong pagbato sa kanya.
Natanong naman ng mga kasama ni Ogie sa nasabing vlog kung ano ang maaring rason sa pagtatalo ng dalawa gayong nagbagong buhay na ang aktor at nagbalik-loob na sa Panginoon.
Sagot ni Ogie, maaring hindi pa tuluyang natatalikuran ni Baron ang pag-iinom ng alak dahil mayroon siyang nabalitaan na hanggang ngayon ay nag-iinom pa rin ang aktor paminsan. Nauunawaan niya naman daw dahil hindi madaling umiwas sa nakasanayan na.
Aniya, “Ako ha, feeling ko lang. Kilala ko si Baron. E hindi, hindi pa rin makakatiis si Baron, iinom at iinom pa rin yan. Akala ko nga completely healed at completely reformed na si Baron.”
Sa huli ay sinabi ni Ogie na wala rin siyang ideya kung ano ang maaring pinagtalunan ng mag-asawa. Hayaan na lamang daw na ang dalawa ang magpaliwanag nito.
“Panget naman, para tayong mga Marites dito na naghihinu-hinuha kung ano ang naging cause ng kanilang away pero hayaan mo na sila ang magpaliwanag niyan,” dugtong pa ni Ogie.
Pinayuhan na lamang niya ang mga ito na ayusin ang mga problema nang pribado at huwag nang i-post sa social media upang hindi na pagpiyestahan ng publiko.

AmbonTV then continued and said that what he did was, he ate with his mom despite that he has already eaten.
“Ang ginawa ko, kumuha ako ng kanin kahit busog pa ako. kinaen ko yung nilutong ulam ng mama ko para ipakita na naappreciate ko yung luto niya.”

Ruru Madrid continued and said that he was shocked as well by what he did and took a bad fall that twisted his right foot.
“Habang ginagawa ko siya, nagulat ako doon sa sarili ko na ganoon kataas yung take off ko.
“Kaya pagbagsak ko, unexpected nabigla kong na-twist yung right foot ko. Di ko kayang tumayo dahil sa sobrang sakit,” Ruru added.
Since Ruru Madrid took a really bad fall, the medical staff were quick to respond to provide immediate medical care. Ruru Madrid was rushed to the nearest hospital.
The results of the X-ray showed that he suffered a minor fracture on his foot. Ruru was then advised to rest for two to six weeks.
Ruru then said that he feels bad for the days that would be wasted for his rest, instead of finishing the shoot of the show that now only requires a few scenes.
Despite what happened, Ruru Madrid thanked the whole production team and his co-actors for understanding the situation.
“I’m very sad. Ayoko po kasi ng because of me, made-delay yung trabaho but hindi naman po ‘yon pinaramdam ng mga tao po dito sa set,” Ruru said.
The young Kapuso actor then promised that he’s more than willing to do anything and everything to recover as quickly as possible so that they can continue filming for the show and finally be able to finish the shoot.
