His mother Angharad Williamson, 30, from Sarn, appeared at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Earlier, a 14-year-old boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, appeared at Newport Crown Court charged with murder.

Logan’s stepfather John Cole, 39, also from Sarn, has previously been charged with Logan’s murder.

The teenage defendant was remanded into the care of the local authority ahead of a plea hearing in November.

Following Logan’s death, residents left floral tributes, teddies and cards near the part of the river where he was found.

Logan’s classmates have described him as a happy boy who liked Spiderman and playing hide and seek.
