No, not heard of it either. Seems she was the family scapegoat.

According to this they got 30 years prison sentence.

Translation :-

"Thirty years in prison for the mother and the father-Typhaine
- January 25, 2013 at 11:59 (updated 6:44 p.m.)
Luc Fremiot, General Counsel, stressed the will to kill the little Typhaine in his indictment.

The Advocate General had stressed in his address on the willingness of the couple to kill the little 5 year old girl in 2009.

Thirty years in prison for the mother and the father-Typhaine
On behalf of "children martyred", the Advocate General had requested Frémiot Luc Friday before the assizes North 30 years imprisonment against the mother and stepfather Typhaine, tried for the murder in 2009 of 5 year old girl, they had camouflaged disappearance. Anne-Sophie Reaper and Nicolas Willot, aged respectively 26 and 27, who admitted to repeated violence against the child became their scapegoat but deny having wanted to kill her, incur life imprisonment at the end of trial began Monday. The court decided to comdamner them to 30 years' imprisonment, following the submissions of the prosecutor.

At the resumption of the hearing on Friday shortly after 9:00, the members of the family of the father of Typhaine, civil parties in the trial, tight in the front row had all put on a white T-shirt bearing the image of the little girl . "This little girl with blond hair, his laughing face (...), they looked everywhere, from morning to night. As now, in this criminal court, it seeks, but there is silence. It has energetically sought because a child disappears, that's life that stops ", hammered the Advocate General at the beginning of his indictment two hours.

Become "invisible children" since his mother had taken from her father's family six months before his death, Typhaine "belongs to us all", said Luc Frémiot. The "children martyred" it "are all our children, we have more rights over them you Anne-Sophie Reaper", he protested, looking at the accused, who kept his eyes lowered throughout the indictment.

Referring to the many abuse for weeks the girl become a "puppet dislocated", the Advocate General said be "face to real torture", from a couple whose will to kill does no doubt, he said. "Yes, the act is monstrous, but the monster you have to judge also hides a woman's heart", mother of three children at the age of 22 who had a violent childhood pleaded his side's lawyer Anne-Sophie Reaper, Ms. Blandine Lejeune, calling the jury to deliver a "strong but just punishment".

"What I did was unforgivable, that's why I do not apologize to the families. Typhaine did not deserve this ", said the accused, feverish in the dock before the court withdraws to deliberate in mid-afternoon. The lawyer of his former partner, Mr. Emmanuel Riglaire, had asked the court in the late morning to "individualize" the cases of two accused and ask this question: is his client "guilty of murder" or " guilty of intentional violence causing death "?

The jury will have to answer this last qualification, said the president of the court. For the Advocate General, Anne-Sophie and Nicolas Willot Reaper are "inextricably linked" after signing "a cursed pact for the suffering of this kid, the scapegoat that must get rid".

"Who do we want to believe that a 5 year old child, when one denies eating when one strikes, to whom we want to believe" that the death was "not inevitable? ', S' Advocate General was moved. After being struck in the evening of 10 or June 11, 2009, he recalled, Typhaine had been placed "under the cold shower", and the couple had returned "watching television".

"And ten minutes, fifteen minutes after hearing a rattle, you stay ten minutes watching TV (...) and there is no will homicide?", Accused the Advocate General. "You do not think that in this context, it rushes to the phone to call for help (...)? The willingness homicide, it is there. We see her before we see her for, we see later, we see all the time ", he concluded."

One for those with long memories

Post  Freedom on Fri 13 Nov 2015, 12:50 pm

Who - apart from me - remembers the very sad case of Caroline Desramault, a baby whose French father was given custody of her (for no known good reason) in 1971?

The decision was later reversed but the father did a runner with the child. It took until 1973 for Linda, her mother, to get her back.

Here is a brief summary that I've found.

In the news 1960s/70s

For many weeks in that decade there was an heart-rending newspaper and other media story about a British woman whose vengeful and estranged French husband had, by hoodwinking the authorities, spirited abroad their infant son. He took delight in declaring that she would never see the boy again until at least he reached adulthood and there was nothing she, or the British authorities, could do about it. I have often wondered what subsequently happened.; With the passage of time I cannot remember the names of the couple involved, but I have an idea it was something like Desremoix and her name, maybe, Linda. Can anyone recall this case that





Caroline Desramault was the child's name. Her father, Rene Desramault repeatedly ignored court orders, including orders from the highest appeal court in France, to return her to her mother, Linda. In August 1972, a few days before Caroline was to be returned to her mother, Rene Desramault fled the French town of Lens, where he was living, and disappeared. He was eventually tracked down to Switzerland in September 1972, and the Swiss authorities placed Caroline in a children's home where she languished until a final and definitive ruling from the highest French court confirmed that she must be returned to her mother. Both parents took turns visiting Caroline in this children's home until March 1973, when the French ruling was recognised by the Swiss authorities. As luck would have it, Linda was actually at the children's home visiting Caroline when the court order came through. She immediately took her daughter to the airport and flew back to England before Rene could get to the children's home and try to stop her from leaving with Caroline. Linda subsequently divorced Rene - and some years later remarried - this time very happily. Rene, a bitter and vindictive man who used a helpless little girl as a pawn to punish her mother for daring to leave him, died some years later.

Murder of Jason Corbett

Post  Guinea Pig on Sat 09 Jan 2016, 5:30 pm

This case has become well-known in Ireland - what was thought at first to be self-defence is now looking different.

Portugal - Mother “kills children out of vengeance”

Post  candyfloss on Thu 18 Feb 2016, 1:46 pm

Posted by portugalpress on February 18, 2016


Mother “kills children out of vengeance”


                      A three-year-old girl is still missing after her mother took her and her younger sister to their deaths in the freezing waters of the Tejo near Caxias (Oeiras) on the outskirts of Lisbon last Monday.

 The tragic story of what led Sónia Lima to kill her own children has been documented by the nation’s media as a case where the authorities failed to act in time, but there are still doubts as to the validity of all the claims. Indeed, this morning, the nation’s most-read paper claims Lima “killed her daughters out of vengeance” and that she has been trying to manipulate Justice “imputing her (estranged) husband Nelson Ramos not only of aggressions but of the sexual abuse of her children”. These latter claims were not backed up by medical examinations, adds Correio da Manhã.

 Both CM and Diário de Notícias attest to the fact that Lima took her children to hospital in November, alleging sexual abuse by the partner from whom she had only recently separated. Unable to find any evidence of sexual abuse and “in the face of the mother’s insistence of these facts”, the doctors advised Lima to go to the authorities - which she did.

While DN documents a number of instances where both police and APAV (the association for victim support) judged Lima and her daughters to be facing “elevated risk” from Ramos, CM suggests PJ investigators and Public Ministry prosecutors now believe that she “acted out of vengeance against her children’s father, who threatened to take the children from her”.

Ramos in the meantime has categorically denied all his former partner’s allegations. According to CM this morning, the Cascais judge hearing the facts far has “accepted” the theory that Lima “never intended to commit suicide, but just kill her children”, and for this reason she is now facing charges of qualified homicide which carry a maximum prison term of 25 years.

The argument that Lima was suffering from depression “which would mean reduced imputability” was “not considered”, says CM. Thus, the 37-year-old has been remanded in custody to Tires jail as searches continue for the body of her eldest daughter Samira.

As many as 300 police and search and rescue personnel are thought to be involved in the operation which has “already covered a vast area”, says ports commander Malaquias Domingues - adding that it is unlikely the child’s body has been caught in rocks near the beach where the children went in (click here). Meantime, the body of Samira’s younger sister, 19-month-old Viviane, is due to be released from the institute of legal medicine for burial.

The murder of Penny Bell

Post  Freedom on Mon 28 Mar 2016, 6:54 pm

For some reason, this case came back to my mind today, nearly 25 years after the event. I don't recall hearing claims before of police incompetence.

Here is an interview from last year with her daughter.

A reasonable sentence for a change

Post  Freedom on Mon 11 Apr 2016, 11:17 am

A minimum of 24 years for this so-called mother.

This is a link to an earlier report before she was sentenced.

I can't bear to read the details of cases like this.

They keep happening time after time. How can other people - such as in the Ayeesha case, her father and godmother - not just march in and take the child away?

Thanks for that, yes interesting, and like you I don't remember this splashed everywhere..

snipped from article (link above)

The 32-year-old, from Chioggia, who had been living and working in the UK since 2013, had initially reported her daughter had been abducted from a hotel.
She had checked into the Lily Hotel near Earls Court on Saturday January 24 with her daughter and a few possessions.
Later the same day, she checked out without Farah before contacting her parents in Italy.

Missing boy's parents charged with murder 20 years after he went 'missing'

Post  candyfloss on Sat 30 Apr 2016, 12:15 pm

Parents indicted in cold case murder of Hawaiian boy


Hawaii's most infamous cold case got a major break when the parents of “Peter Boy” Kema Jr. were indicted Thursday in connection with his death 19 years ago.

Peter Kema Sr. and Jaylin Kema were indicted by a Hilo grand jury and charged with second-degree murder in the death of their son. Peter Jr. was 6 when he vanished, and his body was never found.

The little boy, who suffered horrific and extensive abuse from the time he was just days old and endured abuse throughout his short life, became a symbol for critics who called for reform of child care services.






“It was just absolutely horrifying the torture this child was subjected to,” said Meaghan Good, founder and editor of The Charley Project, a website that is tracking 9,500 unsolved murder cases including that of Peter Boy Jr. “I read all 2,000 pages about the case released by the Department of Human Services in 2005, and it very obvious what happened to Peter Boy Jr.”

Speaking to reporters after the indictment, Hawaii County Prosecutor Mitch Roth said the charges were "a long time coming."


"Peter Boy, this Sunday, would have been 25 years old."

- Mitch Roth, Hawaii County prosecutor

"Peter Boy, this Sunday, would have been 25 years old," he said.

Peter Boy disappeared from his Hawaii Island home in 1997. On Nov. 4, both his parents were arrested on unrelated charges. His father was charged with drug and gun offenses, but later released, while Jaylin Kema was charged with welfare fraud.





Peter Boy Sr., and Jaylin Kema, were arrested late last year on unrelated charges.


They had long been the main suspects in their son's disappearance, but police did not have enough evidence to bring charges. It is not known publicly what new evidence led to the indictments.

The Kemas could not be reached for comment. Their public defenders have not been assigned yet, according to the prosecutor's office.

The Kemas did not report him missing for several months after he was last seen alive, and only then after a social worker alerted police. Peter Kema Sr. told he’d taken the child to another island, Oahu, and turned him over to a family friend who he did not know how to reach. Police were unable to locate her or even confirm her existence.

Peter Boy Jr.’s three living siblings agree that although they were all abused by their parents, Peter Boy Jr. bore the brunt.

In 1998, they told authorities Peter Boy Jr. endured frequent beatings, was rarely fed and forced to eat off the floor. He was made to sleep either tied to the bed, on the bathroom or closet floor or outside without bedding, and was often left handcuffed or tied up with rope, they said.

“It was so shocking and repulsive - the kind of abuse this kid suffered at the hands of the people he trusted,” said Michael W. Perry of KSSK Radio, Hawaii’s most well-known radio commentator. “He was so young, and there were so many dark corners over so long a period time.”

In the wake of Peter Boy Jr.'s disappearance, records surfaced showing how time and again, state Child Protective Service officials missed or ignored signs the boys was being abused.

When Roth was elected in 2012, one of his pledges was to solve the island’s many cold case murders, including Peter Boy Jr.’s.

“It has been a long time in coming,” Roth told FoxNews.com. “We are happy able to start to bring closure for the family and for the community.”

In an effort to solve the case, police and prosecutors have looked at the evidence “with fresh set of eyes” Roth said, reviewing thousands of pages of evidence, re-interviewing witnesses and following new leads.

“We want the public and the family members to know we have not forgotten, and we are still looking for answers and justice,” Roth said

Grim stories there, Andrew.

Strange that The Sun names the people allegedly involved while The Mirror doesn't.

It's hard to understand how in the 21st century a child can disappear for 11 years with apparently nobody noticing or doing anything about it.

The Louise Woodward case

Post  Freedom on Wed 06 Jul 2016, 9:39 am

I've been reminded of this case today with the way that the murder verdict on Oscar Pistorius looks as if it may be overturned.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Woodward_case

There were absolute hysteria on the part of the British media when Louise was originally convicted of second-degree murder. They had all been painting a picture of her as an innocent abroad at the mercy of a corrupt legal system.

The conviction was later changed to involuntary manslaughter and Louise was freed.
