Callum Wilson murder: Mother Emma Wilson jailed for life

A woman has been jailed for life after beating and blinding her 11-month-old son who she then murdered.

Callum Wilson, from Windsor, suffered a detached retina, an "unsurvivable brain injury", broken bones and bruising, and died in hospital in March 2011.

Emma Wilson, 25, of Paddock Close, had blamed the injuries on Callum's "boisterous" older brother.

She was sentenced to life with a minimum of 14 years, at the Old Bailey in London.

Wilson was convicted of murder in December after she was unanimously found guilty by a jury following a five-week trial at the same court.
