A pair of ‘cruel and pitiless’ lesbian killers who Googled ‘can wives be in prison together’ have been jailed for life today for battering two-year-old Liam Fee to death and trying to blame the murder on another boy. Toddler Liam suffered more than 30 external injuries when he was beaten to death by his mother Rachel Fee, 31, and her partner Nyomi Fee, 29, at their home near Glenrothes, Fife, east Scotland. The couple, who were convicted of the shocking murder following a seven-week trial, have now been sentenced to life in prison at the High Court in Edinburgh by a judge who condemned their ‘cruel and pitiless regime of ill-treatment and neglect’.
