Indian mom gets life for killing son

London: An Indian-origin mother, who beat her seven-year-old son to death “like a dog” for failing  to memorize  the Quran, was on January 7 sentenced to life for killing him and setting his body afire to hide evidence after applying barbeque gel.

A sobbing Sara Ege, 33, collapsed and had to be helped from the dock after being told that she would serve 17 years before she could be considered for parole.

She beat him on the hands and his body until he collapsed on the floor of his bedroom and died in July 2010, the Guardian reported.
