The horror house where Arthur Labinjo-Hughes was tortured and killed will be demolished and turned into a memorial garden, it has been reported.

The boy was kept in solitary confinement for 14 hours a day and forced to sleep on the floor in a brutal struggle that fit the “medical definition of child torture”.

He was also poisoned with so much salt, he was too weak to fight against the terrible torments of his torturers.

A council source told Mirror: “Locals really want to see the house demolished and turned into a memorial garden in Arthur’s memory.

“Council owns the ultimate terrace property and townhouses so it is completely within its gift but no family wants to raise their children in such a cursed home.

“A garden would be a fitting memorial to Arthur and maybe the kids from the local school could help design it.”

Councilors could also consider a community center or play area at the site so “something lasting” could come after his tragic death, they said.

It took place after a nationwide review was authorized to check whether the opportunity was missed by the authorities to save Arthur.

A spokesman for Solihull Urban Council said it would not be appropriate to comment on the findings of the Local Child Protection Practice Review.

Arthur died last June after suffering an incurable traumatic brain injury at the hands of Tustin, 32, was jailed for a minimum of 29 years for the murder of her husband’s stepchild.

Hughes, 29, will serve 29 years in prison for manslaughter.

Imprisoning the pair, Mr Justice Mark Wall QC said the case was “without a doubt one of the most distressing and disturbing” he has ever handled.

He said: “This cruel and inhuman treatment of Arthur is a deliberate decision on your part to dismiss his cries for help as a cowardice.”

Tustin, who is serving a sentence in HMP Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, since then quarantined for her own safety.

She was understood to be a high target for fellow inmates, who were previously believed to have Poison the killer with salt to avenge his own cruelty.

It happened after Arthur’s emaciated body was covered with 130 bruises and he suffered 93 different areas of injury – including on his head, arms, legs, feet and torso.

Even if only half of the 130 bruises on Arthur’s body were the result of abuse, it was still a mark for every day he spent being “persecuted” during his time in captivity.

TREATMENT OF PATIENTS

Incredibly, his final months on earth were captured in incredible audio and video recordings made by Tustin and Hughes.

Arthur can be heard crying in a 23-second recording “no one loves me” and “no one feeds me”.

The boy was put in the care of his father after his mother was jailed for 18 years for stabbing her boyfriend to death.

But his “stable” life began to spiral when Hughes plunged into a relationship with Tustin.

Due to last year’s national lockdown, the pair move into Tustin’s home in Shirley with Arthur – sparking a tsunami of abuse that brutally ends the boy’s life.

During his last few months, Tustin recorded more than 22 photos and videos of Arthur in distress.

He was stripped of his bed and forced to sleep on the living room floor with only a duvet even though there were plenty of beds in the house.

The young man had even become too weak to hold a glass of water to his chapped lips.
