The Court of Appeal has increased the minimum sentence of a Windsor mother who was convicted of murdering her own child.

Emma Wilson was jailed for life, and told she would serve a minimum of fourteen years after inflicting fatal injuries to her eleven month old baby, Callum.

However, the Attorney General referred the case, as being potentially unduly lenient.

She will now serve a minimum of seventeen years.
