Mikaeel Kular's Mother Due In Edinburgh Court
The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular will appear in an Edinburgh court today to face charges in connection with his death.
Rosdeep Kular, 33, reported that her son was missing from their home last Thursday morning.
Police found Mikaeel's body in an area of woodland in Kirkcaldy in neighbouring Fife late on Friday.
The discovery followed a major investigation after Mikaeel was reported missing from the home in Ferry Gait Crescent in the Scottish capital.
Police and local volunteers carried out an extensive search for the boy in north Edinburgh, often in bad weather and cold temperatures.
Members of the public also made more than 500 calls to a dedicated phone line set up in the wake of Mikaeel's disappearance.
Police Scotland said on Saturday night that a 33-year-old woman had been arrested and charged in connection with the boy's death.
Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham said: "Following formal identification, I can now confirm that a 33-year-old woman has been arrested and charged in connection with Mikaeel's death.
"The woman is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday."
A memorial service took place on Saturday night at Edinburgh's St Andrew's Muirhouse Parish Church.
Candles were given out at the door before the service, which was open only to the local community.
Meanwhile, there have been several arrests over suspected offensive tweets in relation to Mikaeel's disappearance.
Derbyshire Police arrested a 26-year-old man, while Hampshire Police said a 19-year-old man had been bailed on suspicion of posting a racially offensive comment.
"We are investigating the message to assess whether any criminal offences have been committed," said a spokesman for Hampshire Police.
