The 32-year-old woman charged with murdering her four-month-old baby son has been granted bail.

It was first understood the fatal injuries were caused by a tragic accident at a Deanshanger home.

The baby was admitted to Milton Keynes Hospital with head injuries on March 29.

He was transferred to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford but died two days later.

The woman, who is married with an older daughter, appeared before Northampton Magistrates’ on Wednesday morning, charged with one count of murder.

She was committed to Leicester Crown Court, where an application for bail was granted.

Her pre-trial will take place at Northampton Crown Court on December 8.
