Mother who KILLED her terminally-ill son with large dose of morphine dies after cancer battle


A mother who admitted to killing her terminally ill child with a large dose of morphine in 1981 has died after her own cancer battle.


Antonya Cooper, 77, died over the weekend after fighting incurable breast, pancreatic and liver cancer.


It comes shortly after she admitted to giving the dose to her seven-month-old child Hamish, who had stage 4 cancer and was ‘facing the most horrendous suffering’ before his death in 1981.

The former chair of Neuroblastoma UK revealed the youngster had been ‘in a lot of pain’ as he reached the end of his short life.

In a statement to the BBC, Mrs Cooper’s daughter said she passed away at home surrounded by family and it was ‘peaceful’ and ‘pain free’.

Tabitha said: ‘It was exactly the way she wanted it. She lived life on her terms and she died on her terms.’

It comes after officers visited the family about Hamish’s death.
