A Thessaloniki court on Monday convicted a couple for beating their 7-year-old son to death in 2006.

The northern city’s appeals court sentenced the victim’s mother to life in prison, while the father received 10 years.

Charges against the parents, who are from Albania, included homicide and grievous bodily harm.

The parents denied the charges, saying that the boy was aggressive and prone to self-injury.
