New York: At times it really becomes too hard to even imagine that parents can do such kind of atrocities on their own children.
In one such incident a mass search operation is on in Japan for a seven-year-old boy whose parents left him in mountain woods to punish him, on the other hand a very shocking incident has emerged in which a mother along with her lesbian partner murdered her two-year-old kid in Livingston here.
Toddler Liam Fee was found dead at his home near Glenrothes in Fife in March 2014, having suffered a ruptured heart as a result of severe blunt force trauma to his body, as per MailOnline.
However, the kid's mother, Rachel Fee, 31, and her lesbian partner Nyomi Fee, 29, had denied killing the child but were convicted of his murder following a seven-week trial at the High Court in Livingston.
Notably, the couple claimed that another young boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, was responsible for Liam's death.
The report further said that in addition to the murder charge, the mother and per female partner were found guilty of assaulting Liam over a period of more than two years prior to his death.
And they were convicted of ill-treating and neglecting him from January 2012 onwards by leaving him for prolonged periods of time, failing to provide him with adequate exercise and mental stimulation and - in the days leading up to his death - failing to get him proper medical attention for a broken leg and a fractured arm.
