PHOTOS OF 3-YEAR-OLD *RAILEN DECEASED BODY, CAUSED FEMALE ACCUSED TO COLLAPSE.
The 29-year-old female accused who is charged with her 36-year-old male accused boyfriend of child abuse and murder on the 3-year-old *Railen, collapsed in the bathroom of the Johannesburg High Court today.
After the mother saw pictures of *Railen's severely injured deceased body, the Court temporarily adjourned to give her the opportunity to control her emotions. The Court learned last week that *Railen was killed due to multiple blunt force injuries and burns over 60% of his body. His feet and nailbeds were cooked.
Coetzee the defence Advocate asked if the Court could adjourn until Wednesday for the sake of his client's fainting spell.
According to the female accused she was upset because she did not see these graphic materials in colour yet.
Coetzee told Judge Mtshitse that he had given her the photographs in preparation for her testimony, but " she was not ready to look at it"
The Judge have warned her that she would have to look
" You are in the witness box now, and I have to protect you. But you must realize that in the end (judgement) will always come. The state and defence will ask you to look at the pictures again and then you must look. " he told her.
Cross examination will also start on Wednesday.
** "This post is about baby *Railen, who was burned over 60% of his body, battered until his little bones were broken, and bruised too many times for pathologist to count"**
