An evil stepmum beat a seven-year-old boy to death with a hose then blamed Covid-19 for his murder, it is alleged.
Raasa Osman, 27, reportedly flew into a fit of rage and killed Assam Al Abdullah when he came home late after a curfew.
She allegedly slammed him into the ground several times before he was found dead in a pool of blood at his home in Turkey.
She has been sentenced to life in prison following the incident in the city of Konya at about 1.30am in March 2020, the Sun reports.
Local media claimed Osman beat her stepson with a hose before she lifted him up and threw him to the ground several times, causing him to lose consciousness.
She then poured water on his face and put him on his bed as blood started oozing out of his mouth.
The boy's uncle Ismail Al Abdullah found him dead and covered in blood.
He told the police the stepmum said the child had died of coronavirus and that he should be buried immediately.

He said: "When I entered, she had wrapped the child in a blanket as if she had shrouded the body. She did not want anyone to know.
"Raasa would have buried my nephew without anyone knowing."
After she was arrested, the stepmother first told the police that the boy came home late with bruises on his body after a fight.
She later reportedly confessed that she had beaten him with a hose, but said she had no intention of killing him and told a court: : "I did not do it deliberately. I had no intention of killing him.

"I demand my release."
An investigation revealed that the child's father was deported to Syria about 15 days before the incident.
He was staying with his stepmother and siblings and was made to collect rubbish in the streets for money.
The boy's uncle said she forced him to work all the time and would take all the money he earned.
Osman has reportedly been sentenced to life in prison and the court stated that there would be no penalty reductions.
