GRIM details of little Kiesha Abrahams' life in the care of her mother and stepfather have emerged following the discovery of her remains in bushland.

Detectives are expected to include in their brief of evidence witness statements alleging that Kiesha was the subject of harsh, brutal discipline and was sometimes "flogged".

At other times, she was allegedly forced to put her hands on her head and stand in the corner of a room for hours.Police records show the Abrahams family had 36 complaints lodged with police. No charges were laid.

The bubbly six-year-old, who loved singing into her Hannah Montana microphone, was barely seen at school and had been in class only five times during the 2010 school year before her disappearance in July.
