Mother charged over murder of son, 15, found dead at home in Leeds

A mom has been charged over the murder of her 15-year-old son found dead at a home in West Yorkshire.

Schoolboy Sebastian Kalinowski died at an address in busy Leeds Road, Huddersfield, on Friday. He had suffered a number of serious injuries.

Cops have released a heartbreaking image of the shy-looking youngster in his school uniform with his hands clasped in front of him in a bid to encourage anyone with information to come forward.

Today, the teen's mum Agnieszka Kalinowska, 34 and a man, 37-year-old Andrezej Latoszewski -- both of whom live in Leeds Road - appeared in the dock charged with killing the lad.

The pair did not enter pleas to the charge at Leeds Magistrates' Court today, and Latoszewski was remanded into custody ahead of the next hearing at a Crown Court.

Cops and paramedics rushed to the property last week after Sebastian, a Polish national, was found unconscious. He died at the scene.

Police later revealed that the teen had suffered a number of physical injuries in the time before his death.

And detectives say they're desperately trying to track down anyone who knew him.

The North Huddersfield Trust School student is believed to have been in the UK for a short amount of time.

He spoke limited English and is understood not to have had many friends outside of class.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Nicholson, of West Yorkshire's Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: "We are continuing to develop a number of enquiries into the death of Sebastian and this is very much a murder investigation.

"As a man and woman have been charged, we are limited in what we can
say to ensure the integrity of the court process.

"However, I am appealing for information about Sebastian to help us build a picture of him, his movements and lifestyle.

"We are in contact with his family in Poland and know he had only been in England for a short amount of time and spoke limited English.

"He was enrolled at North Huddersfield Trust School at Fartown and I would appreciate information from anyone who perhaps knew him at school and can tell us more about him.
