The mother of a soldier killed in Afghanistan broke down as she told a court her life is over.
Janet Baker testified at a sentencing hearing for retired warrant officer Paul Ravensdale, who led a training exercise in Afghanistan in 2010 that killed Cpl. Josh Baker.
Baker says she remembers screaming, 'Dear God, No!' when she was told her son was dead.
She said she no longer feels alive, but is like an empty shell of a person.
Ravensdale is being sentenced on four charges, including breach of duty causing death, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
The prosecution has not yet said what sentence it will seek.
