It was a very emotional day for a family of the United Kingdom, who buried a mother and son at the same time.

Kerrie Backhouse of Barrow, was heartbroken when her son was killed by his drug addicted father.

Due to a loophole in the law, Backhouse was unable to get the ashes of her son from the funeral home without permission from the killer.

However, Kevin Morton, 50, refused to release the body so that 13-year-old Kye can have a decent burial.

Backhouse spent a year fighting her son’s father in court after he killed the boy with a dose of morphine.

Backhouse took the fight to the High Court, where she won custody of her son’s ashes. Sadly, she died in her sleep before she was able to bury her son.

Her grieving parents, Michael, 66, and Christine, 65, and son Liam, 25, were joined by friends and family to bury the mother side by side in the space Backhouse earmarked for her son.

Before her death, Backhouse started a campaign called Kye’s Law, urging the government to strip parents who kill their children, of rights to their remains.

Morton was sentenced to four years in prison for manslaughter after the Preston Crown Court heard that he gave Kye morphine after the child complained of a headache.

(Scroll down for video) A grandmother was jailed after her dog killed a baby and ripped out his skull.

The baby's step-grandmother was found guilty in connection with the death.

Kimiko Hardy, 38, of Dayton, Ohio, was found guilty of six charges after her dog fatally mauled her seven-month-old step-grandson, Johnathan Quarles Jr.

Quarles was visiting Hardy in Indiana, where he died from multiple blunt force trauma.

He was killed after being attacked by Hardy’s pit bull mix named Busa.

Prosecutors said that Busa crushed the baby's skull and ripped out part of his scalp in Hardy’s home.

Hardy, who had worked as a nursing assistant, was bitten by her dog during the incident.

Hardy was arrested after investigators learned that she knew the dog was dangerous. The dog had attacked a postal worker, causing the postal service to refuse delivery to her address.

The dog also attacked another dog while it was walking with its owner opposite Hardy's house.

After the second incident, Hardy was ordered to attend a 2 and a half hour training class at the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center on responsible dog ownership, according to the prosecutor's office.

The prosecutors told the jury that this tragic death of the 7-month-old baby could have easily been avoided. After Quarles' death, the dog was seized and euthanized.

Hardy now faces a maximum of 11 years in prison.

Two young children were left traumatized after they were forced to participate in sexual activities with two adults.

The couple of Illinois, was arrested after it was discovered that they have been having sex with a 10-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy.

Marco Antonio Arroyo, 42, and Lorrainne Mary Rowell, 41, of Chicago, abused the children over eight months.

Deputy prosecutor Nadia Chivers described Arroyo and Rowell, as “two of the most despicable and vile human beings to ever set foot in this court.”

Despite the horrific crimes, Chivers asked the judge to accept the plea agreement to spare the children the agony of having to go to trial.

Erica Rios, a DCS family case manager, told the court that the children suffered an intense level of trauma. “Both of the children have a lot of anger to deal with,” Rios said.

A foster mother for one of the children told the court that the child was suicidal and going to trial would be detrimental to the child’s mental health.

Arroyo pleaded guilty to two counts molesting a child.

Arroyo addressed the court on Friday. He apologized to the victims and said that he knew what he did wasn’t right.

He then told the court: “I am not a monster.”

Judge Vasquez replied: “You are a monster. You are a horrible person for what you’ve done to them.”

Vasquez then told Arroyo that he not only brought shame upon himself, but he also brought shame upon his entire race. “I’m ashamed to call you Mexican,” Vasquez said. “I’ve never said that before.”

Rowell's attorney, Samuel Vazanellis, said that his client is remorseful over her actions and she was willing to testify against Arroyo.

The judge reluctantly accepted the plea deal and sentenced each of them to 20 years in prison.

Arroyo faces deportation after he completes his sentence.

A young boy was left traumatized after a leopard snached him while he was playing with his brother.

The six-year-old boy was playing with his 8-year-old brother at a park when he was snatched by the leopard in front of his horrified parents at a game reserve in South Africa.

The family of Johannesburg, was camping at the N’tsiri Private Nature Reserve when the wild animal attacked Kellan Denny.

Kellan's father Justin, who was eating lunch with the child's mother nearby, chased the leopard. The startled animal then ran away with the child in its jaw.

The leopard carried the boy about 100 feet before dropping him.

A doctor at the game reserve checked the child's injuries before being transported to the hospital for stitches.

Justin said that the incident has traumatized the family, but luckily, their son is recovering well and is expected to return to school this week.

A manager for the 6,100-acre game reserve said that staff members were unable to identify the leopard that attacked the boy.

They believe that it was a male leopard based on the bite marks on the child’s back. The director said that there has never been a similar attack in the 40 years since the site has been opened.

Man kills teenage girlfriend with rough sex

Eddie Herrera and Jacqueline Gomez

(Scroll down for video) A young man cried in court as he was sentenced to prison for the death of his teenage girlfriend.

Prosecutors were seeking life in prison, but he was sentenced to 25 years in prison in connection with the death of his prom date.

20-year-old Eddie Herrera of Houston, Texas, who attended the MacArthur High School, was convicted of assault for choking 17-year-old Jacqueline Gomez.

Prosecutors said that the couple went to a hotel room after prom, and they had rough sex. She was found dead the next morning in the hotel bed.

Herrera, who was 18 years old at the time of the incident, told police that he and his mother worked together to rent the hotel room.

They got two bottles of whiskey and at least 20 pills of hydrocodone, which is a prescription painkiller.

He said that they both drank the alcohol and took the pills before having consensual sex.

Prosecutors said it was likely that Herrera choked Gomez until she was unconscious during rough sex. He then passed out next to her before waking up to find her dead.

Herrera's defense attorney argued that she died of an overdose.

The medical examiner's office ruled the cause of death “undetermined.”

Herrera's mother was also arrested. She is awaiting trial for providing the drugs and alcohol to the underage couple.
