The tragic baby was discovered wrapped in a towel around 200 metres from a sailing club by a dog walker in Hythe, Hants, on March 5 last year.

Keresi, who is from Fiji and whose husband served in the British Army, was today told a trial date has been set for November 16.

Judge Jane Miller QC released Keresi, who has four other children, on conditional bail until a plea and trial preparation hearing on June 7.

Dog walker Michael Dorsett, who found the tragic tot, said last year: “I saw something wrapped in a towel, lying by the bottom of a tree.

“I thought somebody had dumped a dead cat or a dead dog and then I saw a little arm or something sticking out.

“I peeled back the towel to have a look and I saw immediately it was a baby.

“So I touched his face gently with the back of my finger and it was ice cold so I knew he had to be dead.”
