London, January 07:

An Asian-origin woman who beat her son to death for failing to learn versus of Holy Quran has been jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 17 years.

Sara Ege, 33, was convicted of murder after it was revealed she had burned the body of her seven-year-old boy Yaseen before trying to claim he had died in a house fire, The Sun reported Monday.

A murder trial heard how she repeatedly beat him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts quickly enough.

The woman collapsed as the sentence was delivered at Cardiff Crown Court. She had to be helped, trembling and sobbing, from the dock.

Passing sentence, trial judge Justice Wyn Williams told Ege: "What was your motive for acting as you did? I am satisfied that, on the day of his death, Yaseen was kept home from school so that he could dedicate himself to Quranic studies.

"On that day, Yaseen must have failed in some way because I am satisfied that it was that failure which was the trigger for the beating."
