A mother described by police as a "monster" has been jailed for life for murdering her two-year-old son.

Rebecca Shuttleworth, 25, of Cottingham Road, Manchester, was convicted on Monday, after a five-month trial, of killing toddler Keanu Williams.

Keanu, known as Kiwi, died in January 2011 after being found with 37 injuries in Ward End, Birmingham.

Shuttleworth, formerly of Hay Mills, Birmingham, will serve a minimum of 18 years.

She was also convicted of four counts of child cruelty.
