The mum charged with murdering her 10-year-old son has been pictured for the first time.

Olga Freeman, 40, is accused of killing Dylan, the son she shared with celebrity photographer ex-husband Dean Freeman, and she is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today.

The body of the young boy was discovered on Sunday after a woman walked into a police station in the early hours of the morning.

Dylan is understood to have lived with his mum.

Mr Freeman’s representative said the boy’s father was in Spain when he heard the “shocking and heart-breaking news, and is beyond devastated”.

They added: “He was a loving and caring father and even though divorced for a number of years, he cherished all the quality time spent with his son.”

In a statement, Mr Freeman said: “Dylan was a beautiful, bright, inquisitive and artistic child who loved to travel, visit art galleries and swim. We travelled extensively over the years together spending such memorable time in places including Brazil, France and Spain.

“I can’t begin to comprehend his loss.”

A neighbour called Guy told The Sun the boy was a wheelchair user who was severely disabled.

He added said: “He couldn’t really speak and spent a lot of time just yelling.

“I never saw them out, I don’t think they went out and about. They just had access to the garden.”
