Mum, 27, appears in court after denying the murder of her one-month-old son after baby found 'seriously unwell' at flat

A MUM has appeared in court today after denying murdering her one month-old baby son.

Chelsea Cuthbertson, 27, has denied killing tiny Malakai Watts, who was found dying at a flat in Hythe, near Southampton, Hants.

She was unmasked as Malaki's alleged killer after a legal challenge to lift reporting restrictions by The Sun last year.

Malakai was found in a grave condition at a flat on February 2, 2020.

The tot was rushed to Southampton General Hospital, but died four days later.

Cuthbertson appeared at a pre-trial hearing at Winchester Crown Court, Hants today.

Wearing a black-and-white dress and grey cardigan, Cuthbertson, who is currently living in Plymouth, Devon, spoke only to confirm her name.

Judge Angela Morris said her bail conditions would remain the same.

The court heard that the defence and prosecution teams will call on a series of expert witnesses to assist in the case.

A trial date was set for June 14 and is set to last four weeks.
