A mother who beat and tortured her 15-year-old son before his death has been found guilty of his murder along with her depraved bodybuilding steroid-abusing lover.
Agnieszka Kalinowska, 34, and her partner Andrezej Latoszewski, 37, repeatedly phsyically abused Sebastian Kalinowski, who died from organ failure, as a result of sepsis brought on by multiple untreated broken ribs.
The teenager was tragically found unconscious by paramedics at a house in Huddersfield, West Yorks., on Friday (Aug 13) 2021.

A court heard Sebastian had suffered multiple savage injuries at the hands of his elders.
These included open wounds to his buttocks and numerous rib fractures, which the prosecution said caused the complications which led to his death.
Kalinowska previously admitted child cruelty, while Latoszewski, a bodybuilder and martial arts fanatic, admitted manslaughter, but both had denied murder.
However, they were both today (July 22) convicted of Sebastian's murder by a jury following after a five-week trial at Leeds Crown Court.
Jurors had previously been shown 'horrifying' CCTV footage from the couple's home, which the prosecution said was installed to monitor Sebastian.
Videos showed numerous incidents in which Sebastian was repeatedly punched, kicked and stamped on. In one video, he was shown being whipped with a cable.
The judge, Mrs Justice Lambert DBE, took the unusual step of discharging all jurors from future jury service due to the nature of the evidence they had sat through.
Addressing the jury, she said: "Your commitment and your dedication to this case has been truly extraordinary, it really has.
"You have had to endure quite horrifying footage of Sebastian suffering great pain over a period of time and then his death.
"May I thank you personally for all of your hard work, dedication and patience over the last six or so weeks."
Jason Pitter QC, prosecuting, previously told the court Sebastian suffered "weeks, if not months of terrible, cruel, systematic assaults and ill treatment, neglect and abuse".

The court heard Sebastian had been in England for less than a year after moving from his home country of Poland, where he lived with his biological father.
Sebastian attended North Huddersfield Trust school, where he was described as a "model pupil", the court heard.
But his mother and step-father claimed he needed punishing for lying and playing truant from school.
The judge deferred sentencing on the pair, both of Leeds Road in Huddersfield, until October at the earliest.
