A 45-year-old man in Texas may spend the remainder of his days behind bars for torturing and severely abusing his girlfriend’s two small children over the course of two years, restraining the 3-year-old girl and her 4-year-old brother with zip ties, mercilessly beating them, and starving them, among other things.

Harris County District Court Judge Beverly D. Armstrong on Monday ordered Victor Prado to serve two terms of life in a state correctional facility for the heinous abuse, authorities announced. Prado was found guilty on multiple counts of injury to a child, resulting in serious bodily injury.

“Our children are our most valuable resource and our most vulnerable victims,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement following the sentencing hearing. “This man intentionally tortured two little kids, and now, hopefully, he will spend the rest of his life in prison.”

According to a probable cause affidavit, officers with the Houston Police Department on the evening of May 19, 2020, responded to Texas Children’s Hospital after being contacted by Child Protective Services regarding two kids in their care who were suspected victims of abuse.
