Liam Fee murder trial jury retires to consider verdict


Jurors in the trial of a mother accused of murdering her two-year-old son with her civil partner have retired to consider their verdict.

Rachel Fee or Trelfa, 31, and 29-year-old Nyomi Fee have been on trial at the High Court in Livingston for the past seven weeks, where they deny murdering toddler Liam Fee.

Liam was found dead at a house near Glenrothes in Fife on March 22, 2014.

The pair say a young boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, was responsible for his injuries.

Jurors in the trial retired to begin their deliberations after judge Lord Burns finished giving them his legal directions - a process he began on Thursday.
