The mother and partner who killed two-year-old Liam Fee have been able to ‘meet up for coffee’ while in jail, it has been revealed.
Rachel Trelfa, or Fee, 31, and Nyomi Fee, 28, were convicted last week of killing Liam Fee using “blunt force injury” that left him with internal injuries.
The pair were also found guilty of a catalogue of abuses against two other children while they were in their care.
But the couple, who were convicted last week of the murder and are now awaiting sentence, have met up behind bars, according to a national newspaper.
The couple are staying in the same building at HMP Cornton Vale, Stirling, and although they are not being kept on the same floor, they are free to meet up during the day.
A prison source told the Daily Record: “They will have met. They are on different floors but there will be times during the day when the cells are open and they will be able to associate.
“They are not sharing a cell. Prisoners can go out of their cells to eat in the hall.
“It will have been risk-assessed.
“Once they are sentenced it will be unlikely that they can associate with each other.”
A Scottish Prison Service spokeswoman declined to comment, saying: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”
The couple return to court for sentencing on July 6.
