The trial of a 65-year-old woman accused of murdering a toddler in Manurewa, south Auckland in 2015 is about to start.

The two-year-old boy suffered serious head injuries and was admitted to Starship Hospital in December 2015. He died later.

Kathleen Elizabeth Cooper has pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder and her trial is due to start in Auckland High Court on Monday. It is expected to last for three weeks.
