Mother, stepfather and teenager sentenced to life for murdering five-year-old boy

UK

A mother, stepfather and teenager have been given life sentences for the murder of five-year-old Logan Mwangi.

Logan’s body was discovered in the River Ogmore in Bridgend on 31 July 2021 – just 250 metres from his home.

A trial at Cardiff Crown Court heard he had suffered 56 external cuts and bruises, as well as “catastrophic” internal injuries.

He was wearing mismatched pyjamas and was said to have undergone a “brutal and sustained assault”.

Logan’s injuries were described as similar to victims of high-speed crashes or people who had fallen from a height.

Angharad Williamson, 31, was found guilty of murder – alongside her 40-year-old partner John Cole and a 14-year-old boy who can’t be named for legal reasons.

She was jailed for life at Cardiff Crown Court, with a minimum term of 28 years.

Cole was also jailed for life, with a minimum term of 29 years.

The boy was detained for life and told to serve a minimum of 15 years.
