5 Yr-old Tennessee girl Alexa Linboom dies from drinking 2 liters of soda

Tennessee parents have been charged after allegedly forcing a 5 year-old to drink more than 2 liters of grape soda and water as a punishment, which left the child brain dead.

Randall Lee Vaughn, 41, and Mary Lavonne Vaughn, 58, have been charged with murder after a 25-month long investigation.

The Tennessee couple's punishment may have caused their daughter's head to swell and herniate of "acute fluid intoxication," according to authorities.

Randall Vaughn and his wife Mary for some reason decided to punish Randall Lee Vaughn's daughter, 5 year-old Alexa Linboom, who went into a paralyzed state, unconscious, after screaming in pain several hours after showing serious symptoms from the parents' punishment.



The unresponsive little Alexa, who moved to Tennessee with her father three months prior to her death due to alleged neglect at her prior residence, was taken to the local hospital by her parents where after being flown to a children's hospital, she was pronounced dead.

Step-mother Mary Lavonne Vaughn and father Randall Lee Vaughn face charges of first degree murder, aggravated child neglect and child abuse.

Held on $500,000 bond, the couple were scheduled to appear in court today.

Meanwhile, five other children that lived in the home, were reportedly removed and placed in DCS (Department of Children Services) in Surgionsville, TN.
