Brutality against little children hit a new high this week after a little boy was stoned to death for spilling milk, according to press reports.

A seven-year-old boy was brutally stoned to death Saturday, by a 21-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl after soy milk was spilled on their clothing, a local Chinese newspaper reported.

The boy was drinking milk at about 1:00 pm in a hallway near a photo studio run by his father. The man and the girl walked passed the boy, resulting in milk being spilled on their clothing.

After the incident, the two took revenge on the child. The two tricked the boy to follow them to a wooded area. The teen girl and the man covered the child's head with clothing before stoning him. The assault was so overwhelming it was fatal.

Police were alerted to the disappearance of the child by his parents, leading to a manhunt and the discovery of the boy's body in the woods. Police found the boy's head brutally maimed.

The teen girl was caught by police that evening at 7:00 pm thanks to eyewitnesses who saw the two heading to the woods with the boy.

She confessed to the murder, while the 21-year-old man, who fled to a town 20 miles away, was arrested on Sunday morning. The two are under criminal detention and the investigation is still ongoing.
