Parents in court over Yaseen Ali Ege death

Help

The parents of a seven-year-old boy have appeared at Cardiff Crown Court in connection with his death.

His mother, Sara Ege, 33, denies beating Yaseen Ali Ege to death at their home in Pontcanna, Cardiff, in July 2010 and setting fire to his body.

The boy's father, Yousuf Ege, 38, denies a charge of causing the boy's death by failing to protect him.

The pair wept silently as Ian Murphy QC, prosecuting, explained the circumstances. The trial continues.
