A date has been set for the trial of a Dublin woman, charged with murdering her two-year-old son last year.

Hazel Waters (46) of Ridge Hall, Ballybrack is charged with murdering Muhammad Hassan Khan between 15-16 October, 2014. The toddler was found dead with stab wounds in the bedroom of their home on October 16.

Ms Waters’ case was before the Central Criminal Court this morning.

Her barrister, Brendan Grehan SC, said his client was currently in the Central Mental Hospital and asked for a date for trial.

Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy heard that a trial could last more than a week and set a date of October 17th, 2016.
