A mother and her partner have been found guilty of murdering two-year-old Liam Fee.
Rachel Fee or Trelfa, 31, and her civil partner Nyomi Fee, 29, denied fatally assaulting Liam, who died at a house near Glenrothes in Fife on March 22, 2014.
The women, originally from Ryton, Tyne and Wear, had blamed his death on another young boy in their care, who cannot be named.
They were also found guilty of a catalogue of abuse and neglect of two young boys over more than two years and attempting to defeat the ends of justice by blaming Liam's death on one of the children.
Jurors returned their verdict on Tuesday following a lengthy trial before judge Lord Burns at the High Court in Livingston.
