Woman charged over fatal stabbing of infant in Dublin

Doctor Maha Al-Adheem, who is believed to be from Iran and has been living in Ireland since 2010, appeared at Dublin District Court on Thursday.

The mother of a three-year-old boy found stabbed to death in their Dublin home has appeared in court charged with his murder.

The woman was arrested by Gardaí on Wednesday morning and will appear before Criminal Courts of Justice, Court Number 3 on Thursday morning at 10.30am.

The Irish Mirror reported that the woman arrested was Al Adheem.

Earlier this week, Gardaí said that they were "treating the case as a personal tragedy" and were not looking to speak with anyone else in connection with the incident.

Police say the man was stuck in the ATM room for about two hours before his boss finally showed up and set him free. Some people thought it was a joke, but thankfully, someone finally called police. "It's got to be a joke".

The boy was found with stab wounds to his body and legs in their apartment in the Riverside complex on Poddle Park, Kimmage, south Dublin.

Ms Al-Adheem was taken to hospital on Monday for treatment after also reportedly suffering knife wounds. He said she made no reply.

There was no application for bail today because that can only be applied for in the High Court so she was remanded in custody for a week.

She was granted legal aid after the judge was given details of her income by defence solicitor Richard Young.
