Edinburgh, Scotland: A woman arrested for punishing a toddler by giving him severe electric shocks using a dog training electric collar has been jailed for three and a half years. The incident took place at Fort Augustus village in Scotland.

Identified as Lanna Monaghan, 34, the accused had subjected the victim to horrific physical abuse for 15 months including kicking and biting.

 

Monaghan said that she had seen a neighbouring lady use the electric training collar on her pet dogs and thought that if it worked on the dogs, it would work on kids too.

During the 15-month long abuse, she forced the minor boy to have cold showers and once beat him so hard that she broke a wooden spoon in the process.

The three-year-old victim's ordeal came to light when a female dog owner reported the abuse to police officials who eventually tracked down Monaghan, leading to her arrest.

Monaghan pleaded guilty at the High Court of Edinburgh and was charged with five counts of child cruelty in 2014 and 2015.

During the trial, Monaghan told the court that she had a bad temper and would often 'zone out' and would go 'out of control.'

After the toddler's medical examination, doctors revealed that he had a number of bruises on his body, including multiple red marks around his neck.

Prosecuting advocate depute Jane Farquharson said, “She did not appear to recognise the possibility that the child was reacting involuntarily and through fear.”
