Rosdeep Adekoya

Rosdeep Adekoya killed her three-year-old son and hid his body in a suitcase.

Mikaeel Kular died two days after being beaten repeatedly by Rosdeep Adekoya following a family day out in January 2014. She reported him missing to police, sparking a two-day search operation involving hundreds of local people.

His mother lost her temper when he was repeatedly sick following a trip to a Nando's restaurant at the city's Fountain Park. She smacked him and struck him on the body and head with a clenched fist.

When Mikaeel was sick for a third time, she dragged him to the shower by his arms and beat him heavily on his back as he lay over the bath edge.

Over the next few days Mikaeel's condition worsened and he was kept away from nursery. He was assaulted again on the Monday after being sick and became listless, but his mother did not take him to a doctor because of the bruising.

By Tuesday night, Mikaeel was said to be quiet and was giving a limited response to his mother's questions. After discovering his lifeless body on the floor of their Edinburgh home, she wrapped it in a duvet cover, put it in the suitcase and drove about 25 miles to Kirkcaldy, Fife, to hide it in woodland.

She was jailed for 11 years after pleading guilty to culpable homicide.

Marina Usaceva

Marina Usaceva, who killed a man while using two mobile phones behind the wheel, has been jailed by a judge who called such crimes “a plague on society”.

Usaceva had told police she was not using a phone after crashing her car into the back of another, killing Sukhdeep Singh Johal, its driver.

Georgina Gibbs, prosecuting, told a court that Usaceva, 31, continued to deny using the phones despite the findings of a police investigation. She had previously been caught twice using her phone behind the wheel and her licence was endorsed in 2009 and 2012.

Usaceva, who admitted causing death by dangerous driving at an earlier hearing, was sentenced to six years in prison and banned from driving for eight years.

Judge Sean Enright told her: “If you were not sending texts at the time, then you were fiddling with your phone and that is what caused this collision. In my opinion there is not a scrap of remorse. Mobile phone use while driving is a plague on our society.”

Insp Bob Turner, who oversaw the investigation for Cambridgeshire Police, said Usaceva had behaved “incredibly foolishly”. “I have never seen anything like it before, it was crass stupidity,” he added.

Speaking after the sentencing, Mr Johal’s father, Buhupinder, said: “Even 60 years wouldn’t be enough, but this is some kind of justice. The only thing we can hope is that others will learn from this. People think nothing of it, but using a mobile phone while driving can kill.”

And despite being nicked twice before, this silly bitch was using two phones! She deserves to be unforgiven.
