A mother from Murang’a has killed her one-month-old baby with an axe before dumping the body in a pit latrine.
Residents of Kiangoma village were in shock on hearing the news as they made their way to the scene of the crime.
The news comes at a time when a 45-year old man was arraigned before court for the murder of his former lover.
Charles Muriuki was charged for the murder of a 12-year boy in September before dumping his body at Ragati forest.

The court warned the suspect from interfering with the witnesses now that he will be out on bail.
