An internet-addicted South Korean couple have been found guilty of letting their baby starve to death as they played online.

They spent most of their days at an internet cafe raising a virtual daughter in an online game instead of caring for their baby.


OK, even with kids, you need to get away from them from time to time, you still need your own life to lead...

But there comes a point somewhere where both parents have to face up to their new found responsibilities.
