A mother committed a "cruel and inexcusable" act when she beat her three-year-old son Mikaeel Kular to death, a judge said.
Sentencing Rosdeep Adekoya to 11 years in prison, Lord Glennie said it was clear a "normal bond between mother and child simply failed to develop."
The judge also pointed to the large search for Mikaeel, involving emergency services and hundreds of residents after Adekoya reported her son missing.
Nevertheless, what you did was cruel and inexcusable.
Striking a child even once is bad enough. Striking him heavily and repeatedly with hand and fist when he was being sick again and again simply beggars belief.
Mikaeel was by all accounts a healthy, happy little boy. By your actions, however unintended, you have not only robbed Mikaeel of his young life but left a gaping hole in the lives of all who loved him.
