Mum denies murdering autistic son
A woman accused of killing her severely autistic son appeared in court today to deny murder.
Yvonne Freaney, of Salop Street, Penarth, South Wales, was arrested after she was found with the body of 11-year-old Glen at the Sky Plaza Hotel near Cardiff Airport.
She stood in the dock with three nurses as she denied murder in a plea and case management hearing at Cardiff Crown Court.
Recorder of Cardiff Nicholas Cooke QC bailed Freaney to the Caswell Clinic in Bridgend for further psychiatric evaluation.
The case was adjourned to November 8 for another plea and case management hearing.
