A British has been charged with murdering her toddler in Finland.
The 35-year-old was held after police forced their way into her flat in Espoo, near Helsinki, on Sunday, and found the lifeless child.
The mother, thought to be a teacher, was led away in a wheelchair, eyewitnesses said.
She arrived in court charged with homicide and will reappear in April.
A police spokesperson said the mom had “acknowledged the deed.”
“No other persons have been in residence, and no other persons are involved in the episode.
“West Nyland District Court has held her. Both the suspect and the victim are UK citizens.
“The police department in Western Uusimaa examines the case as murder.
“Due to the rules of the Preliminary Investigation Act regarding the publicity of the preliminary inquiry material, we are unable to provide further information at this stage.”
