An East Sussex woman has been charged with the murder of her 10-year-old son.
Pembe Mehmetaliogulari, now 47, of Hove, appeared in custody at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 25 September.
He was charged with the murder of his son Mustafa, who died at the age of 10 at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton on 30 September 2018 after three days of treatment.
A Sussex Police statement said a post-mortem and subsequent toxicology examination revealed that Mustafa, who was severely physically and mentally challenged, died of a drug overdose.
He and his mother were living at Eastview Terrace, Saddlescombe, East Sussex before being admitted to the hospital.
Mehmetaliogullari was remanded in custody for an initial appearance at Lewis Crown Court on Tuesday (28 September).
The prosecution, authorized by the CPS, follows a complex investigation by the East Sussex Safeguarding Investigation Unit.
