Mikaeel Kular ‘Assaulted Over Four Days By Mum’ then put in suitcase

Mikaeel Kular’s death in January this year shocked the local community

As I blogged on the 7th, the court case has started: https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/07/07/mum-of-tragic-mikaeel-kular-to-appear-in-court-tomorrow-accused-of-beating-tot-to-death-over-4-days/

A court hears the three-year-old’s mum murdered him, wrapped his body in a duvet and lied to police, sparking a huge search.

The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular assaulted him over four days, wrapped his body in a duvet and shut it inside a suitcase, a court has heard. Rosdeep Adekoya, 34, is accused of assaulting her son at their home in Ferry Gait Crescent, Edinburgh, before hiding his body in a wood more than 20 miles away. It is claimed she murdered Mikaeel after punching him, causing his body to hit against a hard object and inflicting blunt force injuries on his head and body between January 12 and 15, 2014. She is also charged with attempting to defeat the ends of justice by lying to police, having allegedly made a 999 call in which she claimed her son had gone missing after climbing onto a stool and unlocking the front door of his home. Mikaeel’s disappearance in January sparked a huge search involving police officers, firefighters, mountain rescue teams and the coastguard, as well as members of the public. His body was eventually found hidden beneath a bush in woodland behind a house in Dunvegan Avenue, Fife. Adekoya, who is being held at Cornton Vale prison in Stirlingshire and has not yet entered a plea, made a two-minute appearance at the High Court in Edinburgh. The judge Lord Boyd continued the case until July 25 at the request of both the prosecution and the defence, who said the case had a “number of complexities”.

Mikaeel and his Mother whom is accused of killing her son last year

I will try let you all know every day what happened in court. I am trying to go on Thursday, I will take pictures and show you all what is happening.

Mum of tragic Mikaeel Kular to appear in court tomorrow accused of beating tot to death over 4 days

Mikaeel was the same age as my Daughter. We know the family.

MIKAEEL Kular’s mum will appear in court tomorrow accused of beating her toddler son to death over a four-day period before dumping his body in a suitcase. This happened last year and is now ready for court. I have it on good authority she has been beaten several times in the Woman’s wing of Edinburgh’s Saughton Prison

The indictment against Rosdeep Kular states she murdered the three-year-old by repeatedly striking him on the head and body and then failing to summon medical help.

She is accused of then wrapping his body in a duvet cover and transporting it in the suitcase from the family home in Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy, Fife, and dumping it in woods.

Mikaeel and his Mother charged with his murder

The 34-year-old, indicted under her married surname of Adekoya, is alleged to have tried to cover up the murder by concocting a story that the youngster had wandered off from home in the middle of the night, sparking a major search.

This story tore my city to bits. These things don’t happen here.

The mother-of-five, who is currently being held at Cornton Vale Prison, near Stirling is due to appear for a preliminary hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Thousands of people joined in alongside the police in the search for Mikaeel after he was reported missing on January 16 this year.

Together, we helped each other through

But their hopes were dashed when his body was discovered 30 miles away, behind a house in Kirkcaldy, Fife, on the second day of the search.

I Seen police and forensic teams cry that week

We all cried watching this live

What human can do this? What makes a person do this?
