A doctor has appeared in court charged with murdering her three-year old son at their home in Kimmage.

Omar Omran’s body was found on Monday evening when Gardaí were called to an apartment at the Riverside complex in Kimmage.

The toddler had been stabbed to death.

His mother Maha Al-Adheem was arrested yesterday and charged with his murder earlier this morning.

After she was charged, the court heard she said: “Yes, it was my knife. Yes, it was my hand. It was not me. It was the power”.

She's been remanded in custody for a week.
