A South Korean couple have gone on trial charged with allowing their baby daughter to starve to death while they played an online computer game.

Prosecutors said they fed the baby once a day and left her alone for hours while they visited internet cafes.

In a tragic twist, the couple were going to the cafes to interact with a VIRTUAL child – named Anima – in a role-playing game called Prius Online (pictured, above.)

The game enables players to interact with Anima and as they do so, help her to recover her lost memory and develop emotions.

Last month, a police officer told the Yonhap news agency the couple appeared to have “lost their will to live a normal life”.

Such a desperately sad story…
