Mother 'beat Mikaeel Kular over period of four days and murdered him'

A mother who allegedly reported her toddler missing is accused of beating him over a period of four days and murdering him.
Rosdeep Kular is said to have punched her son Mikaeel on the head and body, hit his body against a hard object and caused blunt force trauma injuries to his head and body at the family’s flat in Edinburgh between January 12 and 15 this year.
Thousands of members of the public turned out to help search for the toddler when he was reported missing earlier this year.
The 34-year-old is due to appear for a preliminary hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh on Tuesday.
The indictment shows she is accused of failing to seek medical attention for her three-year-old son and murdering him.
Kular, who is appearing in court under her married name of Rosdeep Adekoya, is then said to have wrapped her son’s body in a duvet cover and stuffed him inside a suitcase.
She is then said to have put him in the boot of her car and driven his body first to his school, Flora Stevenson Primary in Edinburgh, and then to a relative’s home in Dunvegan Avenue, Kirkcaldy.
Kular is then said to have hidden the suitcase under a bush in woodland behind the Fife home.
The mother is then accused of reporting Mikaeel missing from their home in Ferry Gait Crescent on January 16, allegedly saying her son had disappeared from the home. The Crown claim she did this to cover up the toddler’s death.http://news.stv.tv/scotland/281861-rosdeep-kular-beat-mikaeel-kular-over-a-period-of-four-days/
