Arunga admitted being an accessory of murder where her husband Quincy Timberlake is said to have hit their son to death.

Even though her change in a statement did not affect the judgment, it however delayed investigations into the 2014 incident.

During that time Esther Arunga was noted to have dialed Australian emergency number triple zero only to inform the emergency team that her son had fell off the stairs.

Autopsy results, however, revealed that the boy died of force blunt trauma in his abdomen and resembled nothing like a fall.

Esther Arunga admitting to being an accessory

Admitting to being an accessory to murder, Arunga said that on June 17th she went to the bathroom only to find Quincy hitting the boy in the stomach.

He then threw him against the wall as he said there was a devil in his stomach he had to get it out.

The court was informed that Esther Arunga could not speak up earlier due to fear.
