Mikaeel Kular’s killer mum has been released from prison.
Rosdeep Adekoya is believed to have been working in a local shop during her freedom under a scheme at Cornton Vale prison in Stirling.
The exact terms of her interim release are not know but the 38-year-old has been seen out and about in the local area before returning to prison.
It comes just four years into the 11-year sentence she received for killing her son Mikaeel.
Adekoya beat the three-year-old to death over four days in January 2014 after he was sick following a family meal at Nando’s. He had 40 injuries on his body.
Adekoya, who has four other children, hid his remains in a suitcase behind her sister’s house in Kirkcaldy and told police he had vanished from the family home in Edinburgh.
Hundreds of police and local people searched for Mikaeel because of his killer’s lies.
Adekoya, 38, was initially charged with murder but convicted of the lesser crime of culpable homicide in August 2014 after telling a court she didn’t mean to kill her son.
A source said: “She’s going about with not a care in the world and the public she’s dealing with haven’t a clue who she is.
“The relatives of this wee boy will be outraged to know that she has this kind of freedom after serving less than half of her sentence.”
When asked about Rosdeep’s release the Scottish Prison Service have declined to comment on individual prisoners.
