Baby burned to death in oven

A mentally ill mother admitted last week to killing her
three-week-old baby by cooking him in an oven.

Mickle Green suffered 90 per cent burns after he was left in the
cooker at his south London home for a few minutes.

His mother Cheryl Green, 40, denied murder but admitted
manslaughter caused by diminished responsibility.

Prosecutor Edward Brown told the Old Bailey it was “abundantly
clear” that Green was suffering from a “serious and long-standing”
mental illness.

The sentencing was delayed for a month while further medical
reports are prepared.
