Another Evil Act: Woman kills baby by force feeding him with broken glass

A woman from South Africa is accused of murdering her 3-year-old son by forcing glass into his mouth, according to the allegations filed against her. The lady, who has not been named, was apprehended when she was discovered attempting to flee the murder scene.

Police said that when the woman’s husband saw their child motionless in their house, he dialled 911. The youngster was transported to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead. A neck laceration caused by shattered glass was found to be the boy’s cause of death after an autopsy.

Police say that the woman told them that she had become overwhelmed by stress and depression and had lost her grip on reality. She allegedly said that she broke a glass and then forced her son to eat the broken glass. She also allegedly said that she tried to kill herself after killing her son.

The woman is being held in jail without bail. She is scheduled to appear in court next week.

Where are the real killers”: Bokgabo Poo’s father devastated after murderer fond not guilty

The Father of slain Ekurhuleni girl Bokgabo Poo, 4, had a tough time accepting the not-guilty judgement passed by the Pretoria High court sitting in Benoni asking a very pertinent question; “Where are the real killers if you’re saying that man is not guilty?”

Ntokozo Zikhali was charged with two counts of rape, abduction, dismembering a body, subverting the course of justice, and mutilating a corpse. He entered a not-guilty plea. Zikhali, who admitted to raping a nine-year-old child, is still being held in custody.

Bokgabo’s dismembered body was discovered in two different places in Wattville in October of last year, with some body parts still missing.

In blurry CCTV footage, she was last seen joyously skipping from a park close to her family’s home.

The limb of a toddler was discovered in a shallow grave the next day by a 63-year-old lady who was sweeping her garden. More body pieces were discovered around 800 metres distant in an area of open veld.

Judge Ian Cox on Monday acquitted Zikhali after earlier dismissing an application by the state to enter into evidence the statement made by a witness who was with the investigating officer when they collected Zikhali at the Boksburg police station after his arrest, according to Benoni City Times.

“In this matter, there is no evidence before the court from which a reasonable man acting cautiously would convict the accused on any of the counts 3-6. Hence the application for the discharge of the accused is granted in respect of those counts and the accused is found not guilty and is charged on counts 3-6,” Cox said.

The first two counts were withdrawn.
