Hodgson, of Upper Garth Gardens, admitted to the murder during a 10-minute hearing today.

She was remanded in custody ahead of a sentencing next month.

No details of the offense were discussed during the brief hearing.

Outside the court, Cleveland Police Detective Inspector Matt Hollingsworth said: “The loss of Daniel at such a young age is unimaginable.

“I want to thank the entire team who worked on this harrowing investigation and made sure we were able to bring this matter to justice.”

Christopher Atkinson, head of the Crown Courts Division at CPS North East, said the “tragic sequence of events” that led to the little boy’s death has now been established.

He said: “In response to a robust case against her, Carol Hodgson has now pleaded guilty to the murder of Daniel.

“We sincerely hope that those who knew Daniel will find some comfort in this at what continues to be a very difficult time for them.”

Daniel’s family released a photo of him after his death.

And neighbors spoke of their horror after the tragedy unfolded.

One said of Hodgson: “She always waves at me when I’m doing exercises in my front yard.

“She seems really nice.

TODDLER TRAGEDY

“She moved in about a year ago and had friends over every now and then.

“It’s horrible when something like this happens to children.

“It’s really friendly here.

“One of the residents helped me shortly after my wife passed away. It’s a beautiful area.”

Another said: “It’s tragic he was only two.

“He barely lived, poor soul.

“I didn’t know her personally, but I was shocked when I heard about it.

“It’s very quiet here, so you wouldn’t expect it.”

The accused will return to court next month to be sentenced
