Couple who murdered two-year-old son have ‘coffee dates’ in prison

June 6, 2016

A couple who murdered their two-year-old son have been spotted having ‘coffee dates’ in prison.

Toddler Liam Fee was killed by Rachael and Nyomi Fee in March 2014 and now, the pair have been seen together in prison.

The Daily Record reports that this comes despite orders for them to be kept apart.

A source told the paper: “Prisoners said they were going to attack the Fees because child killers are hated the most. But no one has touched them and the Fees have been able to associate with each other.

“During recreation time, when cell doors are open, the Fees are able to mix.”

The couple are currently on remand at Cornton Vale Prison and are due to be sentenced on July 6 for the murder of Liam and abuse of two other boys over a two year period.

During the trial, the court was told how Liam had been so badly beaten that blunt force trauma to his chest had caused his heart to rupture.

The jury also heard from the two other boys who told them of being locked in a homemade cage, being forced to eat dog excrement and their own vomit and being forced to sleep in a room with rats and snakes.

Liam was medicated using ‘Calpol and Ibuprofen’, the jury was also told.

The couple denied the allegations and tried to blame one of the other boys, who cannot be named because of his age.

After a 10-hour deliberation, the jury found them guilty of all charges.

Rachael Fee and Nyomi Fee became civil partners in a ceremony in Kirkcaldy, in 2012. The court is required to sentence them to life, but can vary parole eligibility based on a number of circumstances.
