Updated 9.55pm

A WOMAN IN her 40s was charged this morning with the murder of her two-year-old son.

Hazel Waters, with an address at Ridge Hall in Ballybrack, south Dublin, appeared before a brief sitting at the Criminal Courts of Justice this morning, charged with the murder of Muhammad Hassan Khan sometime between 15 and 16 October.

She was arrested last night at 10.30pm at Dun Laoghaire Garda Station and charged 20 minutes later. The court heard that she made no reply when charged.

The court is granting legal aid and Waters’ solicitor said that she is receiving lone parent allowance. An assessment will be made as to whether a psychological evaluation is needed after Waters asked not to undergo an evaluation.

Waters, who is 46 years of age, will appear again before the court next Wednesday. No application for bail was made in court and it is believed she will be remanded in custody.
