Doctors Says Boy Severely Burned Prior to Death

FARMINGTON, Utah April 20, 2013 (AP)

A burn specialist said Friday that a 4-year-old boy whose stepfather is accused of beating him to death suffered severe and painful hot water burns that contributed to his death.Prosecutors say the stepfather Nathanael Sloop, 34 and his wife, Stephanie Sloop, malnourished and abused the boy over several weeks until he died in May 2010, and then took a hammer to his face to make him unrecognizable before burying his body in the mountains.

Dr. Jeffrey Saffle said in a preliminary hearing that the burns left Ethan Stacy with second- and third-degree burns on his feet and legs, the Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports (http://bit.ly/178HgAU)

Saffle says recovering from the burns would have required skin grafts and three weeks in the hospital. He said some of the skin had blistered and fallen off. The burns would have left the boy dehydrated and nauseous.

The testimony came during the fourth day of preliminary hearings in a case that has been widely followed across the state. Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against Nathanael Sloop, who pleaded not guilty to the charges last year.

Stephanie Sloop is also accused of contributing to her son's death and is awaiting trial.

The proceedings are scheduled to continue on June 20 with oral arguments from attorneys.

During the first three days of preliminary hearing last month, Dr. Edward Leis testified that burns on Ethan's feet and the back of his legs were likely from hot water in a bathtub.

Leis, a medical examiner, testified that Ethan's died from a combination of too many over-the-counter medications, severe burns and pneumonia.

Sloop's attorneys said the boy had been given Benadryl, Tylenol and decongestant. But a toxicologist testified that a regular, adult-sized dose of the anti-anxiety medication Xanax was also found in Ethan's body. The drug is not supposed to be used by children.

The boy died 10 days after his arrival in Utah from his birth father's home across country. The birth father, Joe G. Stacy, of Tazewell, Va., has said he was forced to give up Ethan during the summers as part of a divorce and custody arrangement.

10 days of torture before death by fire should be the sentence for both of them.

Nope... last execution by firing squad was in 2010. Utah got rid of it in 2004 but carried that one out because the sentence was handed down before the ban.
