Former TV Queen Esther Arunga pleads guilty to the death of her son

A former television journalist lied to police about the circumstances that led to her son’s death in bid to protect her husband.

The former KTN anchor Esther Arunga on Monday pleaded guilty to being an accessory to murder after the fact to manslaughter.

Ms Arunga admitted to lying to police in a bid to help her husband, Quincy Timberlake, to avoid punishment.

Mr Timberlake is accused of killing their three-year-old son Sinclair Timberlake. The boy died due to blunt force trauma to the abdomen in 2014 in their family home in Kallangur, Australia.

According to the Australian Associated Press, Crown Prosecutor Danny Boyle told the court that Ms Arunga had called the emergency services and told them that the boy had fallen down the stairs. An autopsy later revealed that the cause of death was “as a result of severe blunt force such as punching or stamping or similar”, which was not consistent with a fall.

She will know her fate on Thursday.
