Jonathan's twin brother, Joseph and a 12YO stepbrother were not injured and are staying with relatives.

Joseph told the Dallas Morning News that his parents put Jonathan in a room without air-conditioning and told him to stand by the window. Joseph said that on the day Jonathan died, he had peanut butter stuck in his throat, but his parents wouldn't let him wash it down.

He said he wanted to help but was worried he would also be punished.

Punishment for these parents? Any ideas?
They should be charged with Homicide and punished accordingly

Eliminate protective custody in state prisons for animals like this and let them get the beatdown by other inmates they rightfully deserve. No charges filed either for the participants of the beatdown.....matter of fact give them a sentence reduction.

They do not all receive harsh punishments. YOu should do your research more thoroughly. Vincent Hills mother received two years, I think it was, and she was probably just as guilty as her boyfriend, may be more so. She admitted to jamming a fork all around his mouth because he would not eat and was crying, along with other horrible things....I could tell you of many, many others this way. No, they are not always and quite often are not punished very harshly.
(By the way, I did not read all of your post. Just this far)

I've read Paul Monies book When A Child Kills (a well-known lawyer who defends children that kill their parents) and wonder, if a gun had been found in that room, and this 10YO killed one of his parents for refusing to give him water, what the outcome would have been?

Self-Defense? Or if the 12YO brother did this, as a result of trying to save his brother's life?

That is UNfrickenreal!

Punishment? Throw them in prison with no a/c, jam peanut butter down their throats, make them stand next to their pathetic little window with bars, give them NOTHING to drink, (empty the toilet bowl as well just in case they get desperate), and let them die the same way they killed their kid.

(Censored) holes!
