Rachel Fee, 31, and her civil partner Nyomi Fee, 28, are on trial for a second week at the High Court in Livingston, Scotland. They are accused of murdering a two-year-old and neglecting two other young boys.

A lesbian accused of murdering two-year-old Liam Fee with her civil partner forced another young boy to put his hand into the toddler’s mouth after he had died and said: ‘You’ve killed him.’

The boy, who cannot be named, told police he slept naked inside a cage made of a fireguard and bars with his hands bound with cable ties, a court heard.

He also said how his hands would swell up and was called ‘pudding hands’ by one of the accused, jurors were told.

The child described how he would sometimes be naked in the cage, had his hands tied behind his back on occasion and would have objects placed on him to make sure he did not move.

Liam’s mother Rachel Fee, 31, and her civil partner Nyomi Fee, 28, are on trial for a second week at the High Court in Livingston, Scotland, where they deny murdering two-year-old Liam Fee and falsely blaming his death on another young boy.

They also plead not guilty to a catalogue of allegations of wilfully ill-treating and neglecting two young boys over a period of more than two years.

The jury has been shown various pre-recorded interviews with the boy the women blame for the death which were held in the weeks after Liam died at a house in Fife on Saturday March 22 2014.
