Rosdeep Adekoya repeatedly beat her three-year-old son after "losing her temper" when he was sick following a family day-out.
Adekoya, who has been jailed for 11 years for Mikaeel Kular's death, struck him with a clenched fist after he became ill following a trip to a Nando's restaurant in Edinburgh.
After discovering his lifeless body on the floor of their Edinburgh home, Adekoya wrapped it in a duvet cover before putting it in a suitcase and driving to hide it in woodland.
She reported Mikaeel missing, prompting a high-profile search operation spanning two days involving hundreds of local residents.
