A HAMPSHIRE woman has denied murdering her one-month-old son.

Chelsea Cuthbertson, 27, of Knightwood Road, Hythe, Hampshire, pleaded not guilty to the murder of Malakai Watts.

Paramedics were called to her flat on February 2 last year and found Malakai unresponsive in his cot.

He was taken to Southampton General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead four days later.

Cuthbertson was released on bail and is due to appear at Winchester Crown Court on June 7 next year.

Her trial is expected to last up to four weeks.

In July police said a 42-year-old arrested in connection with Malakai's death had been released without charge.
