A 46 year old Dublin mum has admitted to killing her two year old son.
The little boy was found dead at their home on the southside almost three years ago.
Two year old Muhammad Hassan Khan was discovered stabbed at an apartment in Ballybrack in October 2014.
His mother Hazel Waters of Ridge Hall, Ballybrack, was arrested just days after the toddler was discovered.
Today the 46 year old was brought before the Criminal Courts of Justice where she pleaded not guilty to murder, but guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.
Her barrister says a number of psychiatric reports have to be presented before Ms Waters can be sentenced, because there are issues of diminished responsibility.
That hearing is scheduled for the 23rd of May.
