Olga Freeman, 40, charged with murder of celebrity photographer’s disabled son, 10, in Acton after screams heard

THE wife of a celebrity photographer has been charged with the murder of his ten-year-old disabled son.

Olga Freeman, 40, was arrested after Dylan Freeman was discovered dead in Acton, West London, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Just hours before, neighbours reported hearing a “childish scream” in the middle of the night.

Dylan’s dad Dean Freeman is a celebrity photographer who has snapped a string of stars such as Bradley Cooper and Emily Ratajkowski.

His grandad Robert was also a photographer and shot a number of iconic The Beatles’ albums – including including A Hard Day’s Night and Rubber Soul.

When approached by The Sun today, Dean’s agent said he was too upset to speak.

Freeman is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today charged with a single count of murder.

Cops launched a probe after she attended a police station and spoke to officers in the early hours.

Freeman is known to the child, who used a wheelchair, and police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the tragedy.

Keith Grindrod, who lives in the building next door, claimed he was woken by a “scream in the middle of the night”.

He added: “It sounded like a little scream next door. It was a childish scream. It was just enough to wake me up.

“I can hear next door and downstairs when they are moving around and I can hear outside as it is quiet at the weekend.

“Then I woke up at about 6am and looked out the window and saw a police car outside.”

Another neighbour, who lives opposite the crime scene, said she would often see a little boy leaving the property in a specially adapted van.

Gillian Fisher, 34, said: “I don’t know who the family were but if the little boy is who I think he is, I used to see him being taken to school in his wheelchair in a specially adapted van.”

Speaking about the victim, neighbour Guy said: “The child was a wheelchair user and disabled quite severely.

“He couldn’t really speak and spent a lot of time just yelling.

“I never saw them out, I don’t think they went out and about. They just had access to the garden.”
