    Man to face child cruelty charges over laced soup

    JONESBORO, Georgia (AP) -- County prosecutors will pursue child cruelty charges against a man who admitted tampering with his children's soup to get money from the Campbell Soup Co.

    William Allen Cunningham, 41, pleaded guilty to communicating false claims last week in federal court. But local officials said those charges do not address the harm done to his children.

    Clayton County District Attorney Jewel Scott said the state case will be reopened and prosecutors will seek to indict Cunningham on five counts of child cruelty.

    Cunningham's 3-year-old son and 18-month-old daughter were hospitalized twice in January 2006 -- the first time after eating soup laced with hot peppers and lighter fluid, and the second time with the prescription drugs Prozac and Amitriptyline.

    According to federal prosecutors, Cunningham called the soup company and threatened to sue. Under the terms of his federal plea agreement, Cunningham could be sentenced to as many as five years in federal prison when he is sentenced April 19.

    wooooooooow..this one just goes so far beyond reason..putting a finger in the chili to get paid is one thing..but lighter fluid, and then actually having your kids eat it? jeeeeze
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    It is called Munchausen by proxy and it is a pretty sad mental illness.
    Usually happens to women though, this is one of the first times I have heard of a man showing symptoms.
