A MUM accused of killing her two-year-old son and leaving his stabbed corpse on a Lidl checkout counter could escape jail time.
Katalin Erzsebet Bradacs, 44, who was arrested after the death of her son, Alex Juhasz, in October is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, which could see her spared a lengthy jail sentence after her trial.
Bradacs reportedly entered the supermarket shouting for help as she placed her son’s bloodied body on top of a Lidl checkout counter in Citta della Pieve, Italië.
The tot was pronounced dead, as a result of the nine stab wounds found on his body, to his chest and neck areas.
Bradacs was arrested by the police after a knife was found in her handbag.
A number of items including the youngster’s bloodied t-shirt, which was punctured with nine holes, and the woman’s jumper were found later that night at a nearby disused building.
The police believe she killed her son on purpose to get revenge against the child’s father, Norbert Juhasz, who had been disputing custody.
The father, who lives in Hungary, alerted the authorities after he received a horrifying photo of his dying son from Bradacs, shortly before she took his body into the supermarket.
Bradacs denied the accusations against her, telling the police repeatedly: “I did not kill my son,” but reportedly gave three contradictory versions of events to the police.

She had been living in Chiusi Scalo with her former nightclub boss, after she reportedly fled to Italy with Alex in September 2021 after a Hungarian court granted custody of the youngster to the father.
Witnesses also reported seeing the mum mistreating her young toddler the day before his tragic death.
Bradacs was taken into custody at a prison in the nearby city of Perugia and the trial is now underway.
The defendant is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at the end of the month, where she may be deemed to be unfit to stand trial and receive involuntary psychiatric treatment instead.
According to the Hungarian news site, Bors, Bradacs will first be interviewed by an expert psychiatrist before undergoing multiple tests to determine if she is of sound mind.
Intussen, Bradac’s parents, Gyorgy and Erzsebet, have said they will continue to support their daughter despite expressing their concerns that she may kill herself if she doesn’t receive treatment.
Her father said: “I hope they can cure her and she will realise what she has done.”
