Killer Rosdeep Adekoya gets a soft 11 year sentence.

Rosdeep Adekoya jailed for 11 years for killing son Mikaeel Kular

A mother who killed her three-year-old son and hid his body in a suitcase has been jailed for 11 years.

Mikaeel Kular died two days after being beaten repeatedly by Rosdeep Adekoya following a family day-out in January.

After discovering his lifeless body on the floor of their Edinburgh home in Ferry Gait Crescent, she wrapped it in a duvet cover, put it in the suitcase and drove about 25 miles to Kirkcaldy, Fife, to hide it in woodland.

But she reported him missing to police, sparking a major two-day search operation involving hundreds of local people.

Adekoya, 34, a prisoner at Cornton Vale jail near Stirling, was initially charged with murder but last month pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of culpable homicide.

She also admitted a charge of attempting to defeat the ends of justice by pretending to police her son had gone missing.

She was jailed for 11 years when she returned to the High Court in Edinburgh for sentencing today.

Mother who killed three-year-old son jailed for 11 years

A MOTHER who admitted killing her three-year-old son has been jailed for 11 years.

Rosdeep Adekoya, 34, killed Mikaeel Kular and told the High Court in Edinburgh she "lost her temper" with the toddler after he was repeatedly sick on a family day out at Nando's.

Days later, the combination of Mikaeel's illness and the beatings from his mother proved too much, and he died at his family's flat in Ferry Gait Crescent, Edinburgh.

When the single mother-of-five discovered his body, she wrapped him in a duvet cover, stuffed him into a suitcase and drove 25 miles to Kirkaldy, Fife, to hide him in the woods.

However, she failed to fully cover her tracks mobile telephone masts recorded Adekoya's journey across the Forth Road Bridge, revealing the lies in police statements on her whereabouts.

Mikaeel's disappearance sparked a major police manhunt with as many as 300 officers involved in the search.

Defence QC Brian McConnachie said the case was "truly tragic" for all the family.

Adekoya, a prisoner at Cornton Vale jail near Stirling, was initially charged with murder but last month pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of culpable homicide.

She also admitted a charge of attempting to defeat the ends of justice by pretending to police her son had gone missing.

Absolutely disgusting and appalling state of affairs.  This murdering bitch (and it was murder not culpable homicide) will be out in a little over 7 years.  Where is the justice for Mikaeel?

Defence counsel McConnachie must be very proud of his efforts but then he is a former Crown Prosecutor based in Edinburgh so no prises for guessing what has gone on there!

Yes, I saw that. Bent as a 9 bob note.

Notice how they chose today to slip this sentence in, the final day of the Scottish Independence debate between Salmond  and Darling when all eyes are elsewhere.

A good day to bury bad news.

There was a petition to have her tried for murder.

Thanks for that WS, I was not aware of it.   8((()*/

ETA  Actually, under the Scottish Justice System she could be paroled at 5 years so allowing for time served she could be out by July 2019.

I hope they don't teach her how to forgive herself.
