Fukushima — A man has been sentenced six years in prison for mixing battery acid with eyedrops to be used by his girlfriend’s twin boys.

The suspect, a 48 year-old former truck driver, has been accused of distributing the concoction for at least six months. The five year-old twin boys who used the eyedrops are showing signs of permanent eye damage, with one of the boys assumed to have permanently lost vision in his right eye.
