A mother killed her son after bailing him out of jail following his arrest over his obsession with child pornography.

49-year-old Kim Margaret Earle of Queensland, Australia, was found to have diminished responsibility when she killed her 18-year-old son Brandon.

The Brisbane Supreme Court heard that Earle struggled to raise her son, who had an undiagnosed condition, which she believed to be Asperger syndrome.

The court heard that Brandon spent a lot of time on child porn websites and writing sexually violent stories online.

After Brandon was arrested, his mother went to the Gold Coast University Hospital, where she worked as a nurse, and stole drugs and needles.

She then bailed her son out of jail and gave him the medication. When her son died of an overdose, Earle took the drugs. She however, did not die. She attempted to commit suicide two more times, but she was unsuccessful.

During sentencing, Justice Roslyn Atkinson said that Brandon’s interest in sadomasochism and child porn had reached the point where he wanted to kill himself.

After his arrest for child pornography offences, his mother agreed to help him kill himself.

“Essentially, you helped him to die out of your great love for him,” Justice Atkinson said.

Justice Atkinson ruled that the mother who has already spent three years behind bars since killing her son, had suffered enough and should be released in three months.
