Yaseen Ali Ege murder: Jury sent home after considering verdict

A jury has been sent home and will continue considering its verdicts in the case of Yaseen Ali Ege – a primary schoolboy said to have been repeatedly beaten until he died – on Monday.

The seven-year-old was found when firefighters answered a 999 call to his family home in Severn Road, Cardiff, almost two years ago.

He was thought to be a victim of the blaze but later discovered to have a catalogue of what were described as non-accidental injuries, including fractures.

Sara Ege, 32, denies murdering the son she gave birth to after IVF treatment and has also denied perverting the course of justice. Her husband, Yousuf Ali Ege, 38, has pleaded not guilty to failing to protect their only son.

Summing up the case at the end of a trial which began at the beginning of May, the judge, Mr Justice Royce, told jurors that cases such as this one inevitably gave rise to strong emotions.

But they had to put all feelings aside and approach their task dispassionately, calmly and fairly.

He said in order to convict Sara Ege, they had to be sure she caused the injuries which led to Yaseen’s death on July 12, 2010, failing to get the medical attention he needed to survive and then setting him on fire.
If they find she did kill her son but was suffering from an abnormality of mind at the time, then they should find her guilty of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

To convict her husband, he said, they must be sure he knew or should have known his son could be at risk and failed to take steps.

Maths graduate Sara Ege confessed to killing Yaseen but later blamed her husband for the fatal attack and said he had forced her to take the blame.

Yousuf Ege has told the jury he never hit his child and did not threaten or intimidate his wife.

Yaseen Ali Ege murder trial: Mother Sara Ege faints in dock

A mother fainted in the dock when questioned about allegedly murdering her seven-year-old son and setting his body on fire to hide her crime.

Sara Ege, 32, of Pontcanna, Cardiff, who denies murder, passed out at Cardiff Crown Court when asked about beating her son Yaseen in July 2010.

She has previously told the jury her husband Yousuf, 38, killed their son.

She denies murder. Yousuf Ege denies causing his son’s death by failing to protect him. The case continues.

The court was cleared for half an hour while Mrs Ege was revived by doctors.

After recovering she said: “My husband is the killer. I did nothing wrong, I never hurt my son.

“Yousef was hitting me and Yaseen came in the middle and was saying: “Don’t hit mummy – don’t hit mummy.”

The court heard how Yaseen died of his injuries later the same day.

Police confession
Mrs Ege claimed that after Yaseen’s death, Yousef Ege left the house and his brother Nasser came to dispose of the body.

As her brother-in-law set light to her son’s body, she screamed and tried to stop him being burned, the court heard.

“Nasser then left and I dragged Yaseen from the fire and ran downstairs to call 999,” she said.

Mrs Ege claimed she was forced to confess to murder after a beating and threats from her brother-in-law.

The court heard Mrs Ege, originally from India, had an arranged marriage originally conceived and carried out over five days.

As a maths graduate she claims she expected a well educated and successful husband but found he was a postman and part-time taxi driver.

The court has previously heard that Yaseen was originally thought to have died in an accidental house fire.

However a post mortem examination showed he was dead before the fire started.

‘Fearful’
The jury has previously been told Mrs Ege was arrested by police and told them she had beat him to death and burned his body because the devil told her to do it.

But Mrs Ege told the court: “I was too scared of Yousef to tell the truth so I went along with his version of events.

“I was fearful for my life – they told me they would kill me if I didn’t do what they said, I didn’t have any choice.

“Yaseen was my little boy and I loved him to bits I would never have done anything to hurt him.”

Mrs Ege was cross examined by Peter Birkitt, representing her husband, who said: “You never meant to kill Yaseen, but when you found that you had you panicked.

“You didn’t know what to do and that’s why you burnt the evidence of what you had been doing.”

The case continues.

Fatal blow would have left seven-year-old Yaseen Ali Ege ‘doubled up in pain’

SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Yaseen Ali Ege would have cried out, then doubled up in pain as he was fatally injured to the abdomen, a murder trial jury heard yesterday. TUE

Child trauma specialist Dr Ian Maconochie told Cardiff Crown Court that the child’s bowel wall had been split, despite the fact it was behind a protective layer of fat and muscle.

He said: “You have really got to hit someone hard to be able to do that.

“There has to be a considerable amount of force to go through that physical barrier.

“The impact on a child of seven is going to painful.

“There would be an immediate physical reaction – you would double up and cry out.”

Prosecutors claim the city primary school pupil, who was rescued from his blazing home by firefighters in July 2010, was murdered in a beating from his mother and then set alight.

University graduate Sara Ege, 31, denies killing him and attempting to pervert the course of justice by starting the fire at their Severn Road, Canton home with BBQ gel squirted around a bedroom and landing.

Her husband, Royal Mail worker and taxi driver Yousef Ali Ege, 36, has denied failing to prevent his son’s death after it was alleged he must have known about his son’s past injuries, including fractures, and did not protect him.

Sara Ege told police following her arrest that she lost her temper previously and hit Yaseen with a stick “like a dog”.

But she later withdrew that statement, blaming her husband.

Dr Maconochie said there were multiple splits in the bowel which he believed must have been caused by more than one blow.

They would have occurred on impact, causing the contents, including bacteria, to escape into the abdomen setting up reactions which would overwhelm the body and lead to clinical shock.

“It could take as little as a few hours,” he told the eight female and four male jurors.

Asked by Ian Murphy QC, for the prosecution, whether it was the type of case he saw for treatment in the London hospital where he is a consultant in paediatric emergency medicine, the doctor replied: “It certainly would be.

“This is something which would need surgical correction or the patient would be likely to die.

“The child is going to be extremely unwell.

“I would think it would be a matter of a day before he was critically ill and death could occur.”
