Khalil Wimes.

A couple from the Point Breeze section of the city was sentenced today to 30-60 years in prison for the murder-by-abuse of their young son.

The abuses suffered by the six-year-old victim were described by both the judge and the prosecutor as the worst case they have ever seen.

Philadelphia prosecutor Edward McCann says Khalil Wimes weighed just 29 pounds when he died in March of last year, having been starved and beaten right up to the day before he died (see related story).

Tina Cuffie and Latiff Hadi systematically starved and beat the child until he died, over a period of three years.
