AN EVIL dad has been jailed for 60 years after he was found guilty of killing his children by feeding them poisoned yoghurt because their mum had met someone new.
A criminal court in the Bolivian city of La Paz heard how Javier Hernández Rojano, 37, had told his former partner that he wanted to take the children, aged seven and four, to buy new shoes.
Instead, Rojano took his kids back to the house where he lived and poisoned his children’s yoghurt with liquid insecticide before feeding it to them.
The dad even ate the toxic mixture himself before suffering from severe stomach cramps.
Seriously ill, he made his way to the town police station, where he confessed to killing his children, and received first aid.
Rojano spent several weeks in intensive care recovering, during which time apologised to family members for murdering his children.
The father admitted to police he decided to kill his children because his ex-wife had met someone new, investigators said.
“The father gave the victims insecticide after a fit of jealousy because his former partner and mother of the minors had a relationship with another person,” police stated.
The case prompted a wave of protests in the city, where resident demanded justice for the deceased children.
Protests were led by teachers from the Technical Agricultural Education Institute, where the children attended primary school.
