Monday, July 15, 2019-Former KTN anchor, Esther Arunga, has admitted that she lied to police on the circumstances that led to the death of their son, Sin-Clair.
The once celebrated anchor who fell from grace to grass after she was brainwashed by her husband, Quincy Timberlake, pleaded guilty for being an accessory to murder on Monday.
She admitted lying to police in a bid to protect her husband.
Timber-lake is accused of killing their 3 year old son Sinclair.
The young boy died in 2014 at their family home in Kallangur, Australia.
An autopsy report revealed that the cause of the death was as a result of severe blunt force such as punching or stamping.
The court heard that Esther Arunga called the emergency services after their son died and lied that he had fallen down the stairs.
But autopsy report proved her wrong.
The Prosecutor told the court that Arunga kept up the lie for 26 days only to open up when her husband was taken for a mental evaluation.
“I was terrified of being alone and I felt terrible because my husband was sick as well,” Arunga said and opened up on why she lied to police after pleading guilty.
The prosecutor said that although Arunga had not interfered with evidence, she played a part in delaying the investigations and the arrest of the suspect.
She will be sentenced this Thursday.
