GALVESTON — As a father grew to hate his son, he punished the child by forcing the boy to live in a locked 8-foot by 6-foot particleboard box in their Galveston home for hours and days at a time, prosecutors said Tuesday.

David Wieseckel, 44, is also accused of making his son, who was then 9 years old, do hundreds of pushups, choking the child and on one occasion extinguishing a lit cigarette on his foot.
