British woman jailed for fatally beating 7 year old son over Koran study
A British judge on Monday sentenced a woman he called a "devoted and loving mother" to at least 17 years in prison for beating her son to death after he failed to memorize passages from the Koran.
A jury at Cardiff Crown Court in Wales convicted 33-year-old Sara Ege last month of murdering 7-year-old Yaseen and burning his body to destroy the evidence.
Judge Wyn Williams said Ege beat Yaseen repeatedly with a stick over several months, causing internal injuries.
