Prosecutors alleged that the Ma On Shan resident murdered her grandson, Endless Cheng Ting-hin, 6, on Sunday at the Beverley Hotel in the Capital Building, on Lockhart Road in Wan Chai.

Principal Magistrate Peter Law Tak-chuen adjourned the case to Friday.

But Kan could be brought to court at an earlier date if she is fit for discharge before Friday.

She is currently under police custody.
