‘Cheerful’ boy was ‘killed by mother and step-father while self-isolating’
The Independent says A five-year-old boy was murdered by his mother, step-father and a teenager before his body was dumped in a river “like fly-tipped rubbish”, a court has heard.
Logan Mwangi, described in court as a “cheerful” and “kind” child, suffered 56 “catastrophic” to his head, face, torso, arms and legs before his death last summer, a jury at Cardiff Crown Court was told.
His body was found dressed in mismatched pyjamas in the River Ogmore, near his home village of Sarn, South Wales, on 31 July 2021.
Prosecutor Caroline Rees QC said the young boy’s injuries were from “blunt force trauma”, with experts saying they were more consistent with a fall from great height or high speed car crash.
