A woman has admitted killing her disabled 10-year-old son after suffering a mental breakdown during lockdown.

Olga Freeman, 40, was charged with the murder of Dylan Freeman, who was found dead at their home in Cumberland Park, Acton, west London, on August 15 past year.

His mother Olga Freeman pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.

Dylan's dad, celebrity and fashion photographer Dean Freeman, 57, was away in Spain at the time of his son's death.

Dylan had autism, Cohen syndrome - which is linked to abnormalities in many parts of the body - and significant difficulties with language and communication.

In the week leading up to the killing, Freeman had spoken about saving the world and being a Messiah.

In the week leading up to Dylan's tragic death, Olga recorded a voice note in which she stated her belief that she had been designated as a Messiah, saying: 'This is my job: to sacrifice my beloved child to create a balance in this world'.

Hours before killing Dylan, the Russian citizen had argued with her ex about his role in caring for their son, the court heard.

Freeman's friend Edita Surpickaja told the court previously that the mother had struggled to meet Dylan's needs and that her mental health had deteriorated.

Secondly, any disagreements over the accords must be discussed within the framework of the official negotiating committees. The deal was agreed in 2015 between Iran, the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany.

When Surpickaja arrived at the home, she found Freeman had booked two seats on a flight from London to Tel Aviv - and told her friend not to go into the bedroom. I did what I did. I did what I did.' Ms Surpickaja convinced her to walk to a police station in Acton, west London, where she said: 'I have killed my child'.

Freeman announced loudly: "I have killed my child". Her plea was accepted by the prosecution.

Jane Bickerstaff QC, defending, said psychiatrists agreed she had a depressive illness with psychotic symptoms.

The judge adjourned sentencing until February 11 after hearing a defense recommendation that the appropriate action would be a hospital order with restrictions.

The father, who has been divorced from Freeman for some time, has previously paid tribute to his late son.

"Dylan was a lovely, bright, inquisitive and artistic child who loved to travel, visit art galleries and swim", Dean Freeman said.

"We travelled extensively over the years together, spending such memorable time in places including Brazil, France and Spain".

The grieving father has photographed well-known figures including the Spice Girls, actor Bradley Cooper and the model Emily Ratajkowski. Foremost our thoughts are with Dylan and his family, who continue to feel his untimely loss and will do so for a long time to come.

"I would also like to acknowledge the selfless actions of my response colleagues who attended the scene on that night and tried in vain to save Dylan's life".
