Mother in court over tower block death
Ms Campbell made a private appearance
A woman has appeared in court charged with murdering her son by pushing him from the 14th floor of a tower block.
Alison Campbell, 25, made a private appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court, accused of murdering her six-year-old son Derek.
Sheriff Laura Duncan remanded Ms Campbell in custody for a week for further inquiries.
She is charged that she pushed her son 150ft from the 14th floor of the flat in Allan Street, Dalmarnock, Glasgow, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Ms Campbell is also charged with wilfully setting fire to a mattress in the bedroom of her flat on the same date.
Derek's body was found at 0300BST at the foot of the 22-storey building where he lived with his mother and brother Ross.
The woman and her two sons moved into the council-owned flats a few months ago after becoming homeless in the Finnieston area of the city.
