Lesbian lovers Rachael Fee, 31, and Nyomi Fee, 28, in Thornton, Fife are been accused of beating two years old Liam Johnson to death. Over eight days in 2014.
They are alleged to have repeatedly inflicted blunt force trauma to his head and body and are now trying to blame the murder on a seven years old boy who they have also mal-treated by tying him naked to a chair in their bedroom where they kept rats and snakes, and slapping him if he moved.
They sedated the little boy to sleep, on various occasions, never gave him enough food, they would naked him under cold shower, bind him on a metal cage with strings and cable ties and struck him, they failed to provide Liam with adequate exercise or mental stimulation by leaving him in his pushchair for prolonged periods and putting a blanket over his face leaving him in a darkened room.
At the time of Liam’s death the two lesbians forcefully place the seven years old hand into Liam’s mouth before the arrival of the police and paramedics in hope that he would be blamed for his murder.
Both women who appeared at the High Court in Glasgow denied all charges and pleaded not guilty, they are on bail and trial has been set for April 4 next year at the High Court in Livingston.
