I read an article about a boy locked in a wardrobe by his mother for 3 years.
"Yonatan Aguilar, 11, who weighed less than two-and-a-half stone, was sedated by liquid sleep aids.
The little boy found dead at his family home had been locked in a wardrobe by his mother for three years.
His mother, Veronica Aguilar, claimed he has been sent to live at an institution in Mexico.
Only the 39-year-old's three older children knew that their brother was locked inside a wardrobe just feet from their bed.
They told police they were forbidden by their mother from telling anyone.
Court documents show Aguilar kept her sedated with a sleep-inducing syrup."
Q1. "...weighed less than two-and-a-half stone." It sounds weird. Why stone? A stone doesn't weight a lot. 11-year-old boy who weights 2.5kg? 25kg?
Q2. "...a wardrobe just feet from their bed" I think something is missing before 'feet'. Am I right? For example, 'a few'.
Q3. In the last sentence, why is it 'her' instead of 'him'?
Thanks in advance!
