A Pennsylvania mother and her boyfriend laughed as they tortured her three-year-old son for weeks by hanging him upside down and hitting him with a frying pan until he died, prosecutors have claimed. Jillian Tait, 31, and Gary Lee Fellenbaum, 23, were charged Thursday with murdering Tait's son, Scott McMillan in what a district attorney has referred to as 'an American horror story'. The pair from Chesco, Pennsylvania, are said to have gone car shopping, bought pizza, had sex and took a nap as Tait's unresponsive three-year-old son lay dying after weeks of relentless torture. The torment included being beaten with blunt objects, tied to a chair with electrical tape and several punches to the face and stomach. When his body was taken to the emergency room, nurses are said to have wept at the sight of his injuries. Officials said they had sex and went to order pizza as the boy lay dying.

The receiving person is required to be barefoot.
