A mum who admitted to punching and battering her three-year-old son to death "had no intention to kill" him, a court heard.
"The Crown accepts that the accused had no intention to kill Mikaeel and that the assault perpetrated upon him, although severe, fell short of the wicked recklessness required for murder," Advocate depute Alex Prentice told the court, according to STV.
Mikaeel Kular's mother Rosdeep Adekoya, 34, has pleaded guilty to culpable homicide.
In an attempt to cover up her crime, she called 999 and reported her son was missing, telling police Mikaeel got out of bed, climbed on a stool and unlocked the front door of their home.
