The mother of Mikaeel Kular was today charged with murdering her three-year-old son, who went missing last week.
She has also been charged with ‘attempting to defeat the ends of justice’ in connection with the death of Mikaeel.
Ms Kular did not enter a plea, and following the hearing she was remanded in custody until her next court appearance on January 28.
It emerged today that she had posted pictures of the youngster online as she paid tribute to the ‘beautiful little monster’ before he disappeared and was subsequently found dead.
The mother used an online dating profile to share photographs of herself with Mikaeel and his four siblings, saying she was dedicated to ‘my kids’ future’.
Miss Kular, who has split from the boy’s father, told potential suitors she was looking for a masculine man but added that her children would always come first, according to The Sun
The mother wrote: ‘I’m working hard to get what I want in this life and make something positive from it, for me and my kids’ future.’
