SEOUL, South Korea — A South Korean court has sentenced a former university professor for 12 years in prison for habitually beating his former pupil and forcing him to eat human feces and drink urine.

The Suwon District Court said Thursday that three other people were sentenced to three to six years in prison for participating in the grotesque abuse that went on for more than two years.
