In Killing Your Son You Abused the Precious Relationship of Trust That Should and Does Exist between Parent & Child; LIFE FOR KORAN ATTACK MUM


Byline: ADAM ASPINALL adam.aspinall@mirror.co.uk

A SADISTIC mother who beat her young son to death for not learning the Koran was yesterday jailed for life.

Sara Ege, 33, will serve a minimum of 17 years for murder and burning seven-year-old Yaseen's body to hide what she had done.

Judge justice Wyn Williams told university-educated Ege: "This was a dreadful crime. He was memorising passages but on that day Yaseen must have failed in some way which was a trigger for the beating.

"In killing your son you abused a precious relationship of trust which does and should exist between a parent and a child."

Ege sobbed audibly throughout the hearing and collapsed as she was taken down.

Cardiff crown court heard how fun-loving, polite and sensitive Yaseen was originally thought to have died in a fire at the family home in Pontcanna, Cardiff. But a postmortem examination showed he had been beaten and abused in the months before his murder in 2010.

Prosecutor Ian Murphy said: "Significant abdominal injuries were the cause of his death. There were multiple injuries including fractures which were non-accidental. He clearly suffered terribly."

Peter Murphy, defending, said: "Because of problems she had with her own mental health and driven by what she wanted for her child... this tragedy occurred."

The court heard Ege and her taxi driver husband Yousef, 38, had wanted Yaseen to become Hafiz, an Islamic term for someone who memorises the Koran. But Ege became frustrated with his inability to learn it.
