The mummified corpse of a four-year-old boy was discovered in his mother's bedroom nearly two years after he starved to death, a court has heard.
The prosecution outlined details of how Hamzah Khan''s body was found in September 2011 as his mother Amanda Hutton went on trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Hutton, 43, denies her son's manslaughter.
The prosecution allege that Hamzah was malnourished and eventually starved to death in December 2009.
Following the conviction of Amanda Hutton, questions are raised over two little boys killed by those who were supposed to care for them.
A mother who starved her son to death threatened to kill her other children, a judge who sentenced her to 15 years in prison heard.
For two years the mummified body of four-year-old Hamzah Khan lay hidden in his mother's squalid house.
