A mother was arrested on charges of murder after beating her son for several days and dumping his dead body in the woods, police in the United Kingdom said.
The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular, put his body in a suitcase before hiding it in the woods, prosecutors told a court.
34-year-old Rosdeep Adekoya, punched Mikaeel in the head and body, and hit his body against a hard object, causing blunt trauma injury in the family home located in Edinburgh.
After her son died, she wrapped his body in a quilt before putting it in the suitcase. She dumped his remains under a bush.
The mother was also charged with obstruction for lying to police, saying that her son disappeared overnight. Hundreds of volunteers joined emergency services to look for Mikaeel, but according to court documents the three-year-old boy was already dead.
Police officers, members of the fire service, coastguard, mountain rescue, air support and members of the public searched for the dead child.
