The mother of murdered schoolboy Logan Mwangi has been refused permission to appeal against her conviction.
Angharad Williamson was sentenced to life in prison for her part in the brutal killing of the five-year-old in Bridgend.
Logan was beaten to death and then callously tossed in the river while Williamson played the part of a distraught mum looking for her missing child.
Williamson, her partner John Cole, and Cole’s teenage step-son Craig Mulligan were all convicted of murder at trial in Cardiff Crown Court.
However, Williamson subsequently launched a legal bid to appeal against her conviction. Her initial application for permission to appeal the case – known as leave to appeal – was rejected, and the matter was taken to the Court of Appeal.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Swansea Crown Court on Wednesday heard the renewed application.
The Court of Appeal heard that Williamson was seeking leave to appeal against her conviction on the grounds that evidence relating to her partner Cole had not been allowed to be put before the jury by trial judge Mrs Justice Jefford.
