Woman jailed after beating her child to death over not learning the Koran

Sara Ege 
According to yourjewishnews online, a woman was arrested and charged with murder after beating her child to death over not learning the Koran, according to court proceedings in England.
A British judge on Monday sentenced the 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 found the 33-year-old Sara Ege guilty last month for the murder of seven-year-old Yaseen, who burned his body to destroy the evidence.
Judge Wyn Williams said Ege beat Yaseen with a stick repeatedly over several months, causing internal injuries.

He said that, on the day of his death in 2010, Yaseen had remained home from school to memorize verses of the holy book of the Muslims, and that his failure was the trigger for the beating that killed him.
The judge agreed with defense arguments about Ege’s state of mind home, saying she was a devoted and loving mother who suffered from depression and had been a victim of domestic violence.
However, he said, her son was subjected to prolonged cruelty.
Ege admitted killing her son in a recorded confession by the police, but later recanted and blamed her husband, Yousef. He was tried and acquitted of the charge of failing to prevent the death of his son.
Ege cried when the judge sentenced her to prison. Williams ruled that the 2 and a half years the mother already spent in psychiatric units since her arrest will count toward her 17-year minimum sentence.
