Rachel Fee, 31, mother who tortured and killed her toddler son alongside her lesbian lover, wins right to appeal her murder conviction

Our thanks to Ken for this. Excerpts:

The twisted pair spent two years torturing Liam before finally killing him at their Fife home in March 2014.

He suffered fatal heart injuries similar to those found on road crash victims and spent the last few days of his short life in agony from an untreated broken leg and fractured arm.

He died when his heart ruptured from blows to his chest – and a pathologist found he had more than 30 injuries, including a fractured upper arm and thigh.

The evil pair – originally from Ryton, Tyne and Wear – were also behind a catalogue of unspeakable cruelty against two boys in their care, one of whom they tried to blame for Liam’s death.

Their trial heard one of the boys had been imprisoned in a cage made from a fire guard, with his his hands tied behind his back.

Another boy was tied naked to a chair in a dark room with nine snakes and several rats, forcing him to eat his own vomit and telling him a boa constrictor ‘ate naughty little boys’.

Nyomi had attempted to frame one of the boys by forcing him to put his hand in the dead toddler’s mouth to ensure a transfer of DNA…

Jurors considering their verdict against Fee may have felt the evidence in front of them meant that it was more appropriate to hand down a guilty verdict to culpable homicide than murder, he [Gavin Anderson, defence counsel] said.

Lady Paton said: ‘We will allow the appeal to proceed.’

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    Let’s hope the appeal has been allowed so they can say that all legal proceedures have been exhausted, so reducing the grounds for agitation on their behalf thus ‘putting the matter to bed’.

    I HOPE this degree of foresight is not entirely beyond the legal authorities.

    I could be wrong of course..

      Feminist cowed judicial system, of course you are wrong. I am just wondering how much that pair will get for being wrongfully imprisoned

        Now don’t mince your words dear Cheannaich – just come out with it and say what you mean!
        What DOES cheannaich mean by the way – head/face perhaps?

  • “The jail terms were the longest ever handed to female criminals in Scotland.”

    Quite an interesting fact, goes to show the seriousness of the crime.
