She "lost her temper" when he was repeatedly sick following a trip to Nandos in the city on January 12, and smacked and struck him on the body and head.

Not long enough. She beat him and then concealed his death and hid his body in a suitcase in woods some distance away. Mad or Bad? Both, I fear, but she should be locked away for a very long time.

11 years doesn't seem long enough to me, especially as she is unlikely to serve the whole sentence.
it really does not seem long enough to me either
Only 11 years!

Justice for Mikaeel? I don't think so.
Manslaughter......not murder.Top sentence for manslaughter in Scotland is 10 years.....I think.
Not enough in my opinion. Poor little boy.
if she was jailed for 11 years, then clearly the top sentence is not 10 years sqad!
black_cat....;-)

I was a year out.

She had been charged with murder, but admitted the reduced charge of culpable homicide.
Found guilty of Culpable Homicide not murder.

Murder or culpable homicide the result was the same. RIP Mikaeel, you didn't deserve this.
Just no justice, is that poor child's life brutally ended then only a paltry 11years (less with time off for good behaviour) in retribution? In the USA I doubt if she'd see freedom again. I'm disgusted.
Its all over, at last :::::

This case really saddened me last January. Poor little lad.
social services were involved with this family, they are having a '' case review''
-- answer removed --
^^^ they will learn lessons and improve, same old same old.
Five or six years and she can be back to her Sunday-school teacher like life of quiet contemplation and abstinence.

Disgusting woman.
Social services haven't learned much about those poor little children who have been abused for months and killed. Nor it seems is sentencing for murdering a child. The whole system needs overhauling.
Culpable homicide is a concept unknown to English law. Either murder or manslaughter, both of which can attract a sentence of life imprisonment.
There are a number of variants in Scottish to English law Obiter.Though the oddest,which was never going to apply in this case,is the verdict of not proven.
