The once flying TV personality on Thursday escaped jail term after she faces charges if killing her son in 2014.

She was handed over 10 months parole with immediate release by an Australian court

Parole jail term means one should not be in jail but assigned different roles outside prison.

On Monday, Arunga admitted to misleading police in order to help her husband escape punishment.

Arunga’s three-year-old son died as a result of blunt force trauma to his abdomen.


According to Esther’s confession, Quincy Timberlake  grabbed the son, pressed his stomach and threw him at the wall of their home.

Esther Arunga told Australian police that her husband, Quincy, grabbed the Bible and said: “there’s a devil in his stomach I had to get it out”. Arunga told police her husband “was sitting on my son, he was sitting on his stomach”. The court was told that Mr. Timberlake then threw the 3 year old boy against the wall, saying: “there were demons in his stomach”.

Sinclair Timberlake succumbed to the fatal injuries at his family home at Kallangur, north of Brisbane in Australia, on June 2014.

The once flying KTN Prime news anchor was emotionally disintegrated with many other TV personalities and fans believing that the ‘Finger of God’ church that Quincy was the Priest was indulging in devil worshipping.

Esther was once seen on news differing and shouting at her own family members and journalists who tried to shoot questions on what could have really transpired to the lawyer and renowned journalist.
