A MUM was today charged with murdering her five-year-old son who was found stabbed to death at their home.
Emma Jackson is due to appear before a Crown Court judge after little Tyler Jackson-Warmington was found brutally knifed during an attack inside his terraced home, which left the local neighbourhood reeling in shock.
A Home Office Pathologist carried out a detailed post mortem examination on the primary schoolboy and ruled that he had been stabbed to death.
Police revealed that his 40-year-old mother was charged by postal notification and was due to appear Oxford Crown Court tomorrow.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said the autopsy carried out at a nearby hospital mortuary had shown that Tyler suffered a number of stab wounds to his chest in the attack which left him dead.
The alarm was raised by a member of the public who was believed to have gone to the family home in Bromsgrove Cottages, Faringdon, Oxon., at lunchtime on Tuesday, March 14, and the woman was arrested at the house and taken to cells at the nearby Abingdon police station.
Jackson was receiving hospital treatment since the attack and she was charged via a postal summons.
Neighbour Paul Fothergill, aged 60 years, said that Tyler used to attend a private prep school run by parents in Faringdon.
He told of how he saw Tyler in Faringdon House Preparatory School's green school uniform before the school closed down due to financial difficulties over the summer holidays last year. It was thought that Tyler then went to Faringdon Infants School.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police today said: "Emma Jackson, aged 40 of Bromsgrove, Faringdon, has been charged with one count of murder, by postal notification.
"It is in connection with an incident in which five year old Tyler Warmington was found dead on 14 March 2017 in Faringdon.
"Jackson will appear at Oxford Crown Court on Friday."
