Paying tribute, his family described him as a “super-happy, gorgeous, wonderful and intelligent” child.

A further case management hearing will take place on February 25, with a trial provisionally listed to begin on May 3 and last around seven days.

Judge Michael Fitton QC remanded Steele, of Broadlands, Bridgend, into custody.

He told her: “Thank you very much for your co-operation today and I have noted you have been listening carefully.

“The next hearing will be on February 25 and the trial date will be confirmed shortly.

“You will be remanded into custody and I will extend the custody time limit until May 16.”
