A mother who beat her seven-year-old son "like a dog" when he failed to memorise passages of the Koran has been found guilty of his murder.

Sara Ege, 33, beat Yaseen Ege to death at their home in Pontcanna, Cardiff, in July 2010 and set fire to his body.

She was also found guilty of perverting the course of justice at Cardiff Crown Court. Sentence was adjourned.

The boy's father, Yousuf Ege, 38, was acquitted of causing Yaseen's death by failing to protect him.

Yaseen Ege was beaten to death by his mother, who then set fire to his body
It was initially thought Yaseen had died in the blaze at the family home but tests later revealed he had died hours earlier.

His mother had pleaded not guilty to his murder and claimed her husband was responsible for Yaseen's death.

She said she feared her husband would murder her unless she confessed to the murder.

That confession - made to police days after the death of her son - was captured on video and played to the jury during the five week trial.

During the hour-long harrowing footage, Ege described how the young boy collapsed while still murmuring extracts of the Koran.

"He was breathing as if he was asleep when I left him," she said.

Sara Ege made no attempt to seek the medical attention he so obviously needed”

Ian Murphy
Prosecutor
"He was still murmuring the same thing over and over again. I thought that he was just tired."

When she returned 10 minutes later she found her son shaking and shivering on the floor. He then died.

Within moments she said she decided to burn his body and ran downstairs to get a lighter and a bottle of barbecue gel.

In police interviews she also confessed to beating her son for no reason and that her anger often led to her being out of control.

"It was not my intention to do anything. I cannot explain, I loved my son so much," she told officers.

"He was so good. He never, ever complained about anything."

'Suffered terribly'
The prosecution said that Yaseen suffered significant abdominal injuries that were the cause of his death.

Emergency services at the house in Pontcanna in 2010
They included fractures which were non-accidental.

"Sara Ege made no attempt to seek the medical attention he so obviously needed," prosecutor Ian Murphy said.

"He clearly suffered terribly. She started the fire to hide what she had done."

Ege was found guilty of murder and perverting the course of justice by burning Yaseen's body.

Her husband was cleared of causing or allowing the death of a child by failing to protect him.

The jury returned unanimous verdicts after eight hours of deliberation.

As the verdict was read out Ege broke down in the dock, holding her head in her hands and crying.

Judge Mr Justice Wyn Williams told her she faces a term of life imprisonment

Her husband showed no emotion as he walked free from court.

Mr Justice Wyn Williams told the court he would determine a minimum sentence for Ege in the New Year after a medical report had been completed.

Poor kid was tortured for who knows how long. Even his school teachers knew it. Nothing done to protect him. If the teachers knew, the father should have known. Don't see how he can escape some responsibility.

but but is nothing to do with islam...

Almost everyone knows the Hadeeth (narration) in which the Prophet,, said:“Order your children to perform prayer when they are seven years old and beat them (for neglecting it) when they are ten.”[Al-Albaani: Hasan]

The son is dead. The mother needs to go away for life, or hang. The father needs to be deported and no allowed to ever return.

Now I wonder what will really happen? Keep us posted.

sadly this evil woman lives in the uk Cardif and our legal system is weak!
it hasnt been mentioned in the topix UK cardif as yet but im sure it will
Clearly she is evil and should never be released! as far as the Father i consider him guilty for not protecting his son and should be punished severly
But of cource if the quran tells them to do it and they did That makes them even more dangeours

Sad day when the memorizing the contents of an evil book trumps the love of your child and proper family morals.

To be fair, I don't think this represents Islam. We have plenty of child killers like Casey Anthony, Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, etc.
