An 3-year-old who has been mistakenly sentenced to life in prison for alleged role in the killing of three people more than two years ago by an Egyptian Military court.

According to the New York Times, the child Ahmed Mansour Qurani Sharara, was just 16 months old when it is alleged he killed three people, took part in protests and damaging government buildings.

CNN reported that the verdict was handed down last week during a trial that saw the child and 115 others found guilty in the killings and taking part in the political protests in January 2014.

The news station reported that when authorities came to arrest Sharara, they infact arrested his father as they soon realized the accused was in fact a toddler.

However, an Egyptian military official Facebook page has posted that it was a case of mistaken identity.  A 16-year-old with the same name was the individual who was meant to be on trial for the alleged crimes.

The times reported that Police spokesman, Abu Bakr Abdel-Karim, said the suspect was actually the toddler’s 51-year-old uncle who has a similar name, and the military still may be mistaken as to the true identity of the accused.

“I don’t know why there is a contradiction between the statements,” the newspaper cited Abdel-Karim as saying. “I’m not the one responsible for communication with the army.”
