Four years on, woman who killed son freed to go shopping
THE mother of Mikaeel Kular has been allowed out of prison on shopping trips just four years into an 11-year jail sentence for killing her child, it was reported last night.
Rosdeep Adekoya is said to have attended a library in Stirling, visited a local shop and taken a bus ride as part of a scheme to prepare her for release from nearby Cornton Vale prison.
Adekoya, pictured, repeatedly beat Mikaeel, three, when he fell ill following a family dinner at a Nando’s restaurant.
When she discovered he was dead, she stuffed his body in a suitcase and dumped it before telling police the toddler had gone missing from her home in Edinburgh, sparking a search in which hundreds of local people helped police hunt for the boy.
But Adekoya was convicted of culpable homicide rather than murder, leading to a major public backlash.
The mother, now 38, was jailed for 11 years in 2014 for killing Mikaeel and dumping the boy’s body in the suitcase in Kirkcaldy, Fife.
At the time a judge condemned her actions as ‘cruel and inexcusable’.
We previously told how the mother of five would become eligible to apply for parole at the halfway point of her sentence if she convinces the Parole Board that she poses no threat.
