Photographs of a squalid flat where a mother murdered her toddler son have been released by the Crown Office.

Kimberley Hainey is due to be sentenced on Thursday for the murder of Declan at the family home in Bruce Road, Paisley.

The child's mummified body was found in his cot in March 2010 - eight months after he was last seen alive.

Photographs released show the Bruce Road flat in a state of disarray, with soiled nappies and rubbish strewn across the floor.

Life sentence

Hainey, 37, was convicted of murdering Declan in December, following a six-week trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

She was also convicted of a string of neglect charges, in which she abandoned her son for excessive periods of time and failed to provide him with adequate nourishment.

Hainey also pretended the child was being cared for by family members or that he was at nursery, leading people to believe he was still alive.

She faces a life sentence when she is brought back to court on Thursday.
