August 17, 2020

A  woman has been charged with the murder of a 10-year-old boy who was believed to have been severely disabled.

The child’s body was discovered at a home in Cumberland Park, Acton, west London, after a woman walked into a police station in the early hours of Sunday. 

Olga Freeman, 40, has been charged with murder and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday, Scotland Yard said. 

Police believe they know the identity of the boy, who was known to Freeman, according to the force. 

No-one else is being sought in connection with the death.

Reverend Nick Jones, 61, the rector of Acton, who lives in Cumberland Park, said on Sunday that news of the boy’s death was “shattering”.

He said: “I’m still shaking a bit, it’s hugely upsetting.”

Neighbours described how the boy was “wheelchair bound” and struggled with his speech.
