Killer mum loses appeal to challenge conviction for torturing boy, 5, to death
The mum who murdered her five-year-old son, Logan Mwangi, by torturing him to death has lost her appeal to challenge her conviction.
Angharad Williamson was sentenced to life in prison for killing the youngster at a trial at Cardiff Crown Court, last year.
The 31-year-old from Sarn, Bridgen, was convicted of murder along with John Cole, 41, Logan’s stepfather, and 14-year-old Craig Mulligan.
Across the ten week trial, it was revealed how Logan had been subjected to horrific mental suffering and physical torture.
Little Logan suffered a catalogue of injuries before his tragic death.
The three of them were also found to have attempted to cover-up the murder and claimed to police that Logan had gone missing despite CCTV showing Cole and Mulligan dumping his body in the nearby River Ogmore in Pandy Park during the early hours of July 31, 2021.
