The mother of three-year-old Mikaeel Kular will appear in court on Monday in connection with his death.
Rosdeep Kular, who was charged under her married name of Adekoya, appeared from custody at Edinburgh Sheriff court accused of murdering her son and attempting to defeat the ends of justice.
His body was discovered in Fife on Friday after he was reported missing from his home in the north of Edinburgh.
The 33-year-old appeared shortly before 4pm in a brief private hearing, before Sheriff Frank Crowe, that lasted a few minutes.
She made no plea or declaration, was remanded in custody and committed for further examination .
