London: An Indian-origin mother sentenced to 11 years in prison for beating her three-year-old son to death has been divorced by her husband while in jail.
Rosdeep Kular Adekoya had pleaded guilty to beating Mikaeel Kular to death and then burying his body in woodlands in Scotland last January.
The 34-year-old was estranged and living apart from husband Omotoso Adekoya when she murdered Mikaeel, her son from a previous marriage.
Adekoya lodged the divorce paperwork on December 10, giving her 15 days to contest the split.
Documents show the divorce was granted as Adekoya sat in her cell on Christmas Day 2014.
He declined to comment on the reasons for the divorce and?told the 'Sun': "I don't want to speak about that."
The High Court in Edinburgh had heard how Rosdeep Adekoya repeatedly beat Mikaeel before stuffing his lifeless body into a suitcase.
She lost her temper and assaulted the toddler when he was repeatedly sick after a family day out at a restaurant on January 12, 2014.
After he died from his injuries at their city home two days later, she wrapped his body in a duvet cover, concealed it in the suitcase and drove 25 miles to Fife to hide it in Kirkcaldy woodland.
A major search was launched for the youngster after Adekoya phoned 999 and claimed her son was missing in an effort to conceal the crime.
She finally admitted to police: "It was an accident and I panicked."
Adekoya has been a prisoner in Cornton Vale in Stirling since being sentenced last August.
