Dad puts his kids in the dryer for punishment, WTF?

A man accused of putting two young children in a clothes dryer will be sent to Larned State Security Hospital after being found incompetent to stand trial.

Aron Pritchard, 27, was charged with a single count of child abuse and another count of endangering a child after he placed a 3-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl in a clothes dryer.

Prosecutors allege Pritchard put the children in the hot dryer to punish them for wetting their pants. The boy was treated for second-degree burns but the girl was not injured.

Pritchard maintains that he was giving the children rides in the dryer, and said he even put pillows inside the machine to cushion the children. Full article here.
