Mother Charged With Murdering Her Newborn Baby And Keeping Body In Her Home For 3 Months
Kajiado police arrested and detained a 34-year-old woman on suspicion of murdering her newborn baby and burying the body in her home for more than three months.
The woman's 14-year-old daughter reported the incident to police and was booked under OB No. 27/28/10/2022, claiming that their Majengo slums house had become uninhabitable due to an unbearable choking smell.
After inspecting the house, police officers discovered the baby's remains in a plastic water bucket under the bed.
Kajiado Central Sub County Police Commander Daudi Loronyokwe confirmed the incident, saying the woman will be arraigned in court on Monday as police investigate the bizarre incident.
Loronyokwe urged parents to seek help when they are unable to address their children's problems rather than committing such heinous acts.
So far, it has been established that she gave birth on July 16, 2022, at a local hospital within the town.
Detectives will also try to determine the woman's mental state.
