|A 17 year old Mataga woman reportedly fatally struck her 3 weeks old baby boy on the head with a rock following a misunderstanding with her husband.
Eustina Shumba on Tuesday night stoned her baby, after her husband Stanford Mapfumo reportedly disowned the baby following a dispute between the couple.
After committing the heinous crime, Shumba reportedly went to report to the police and reported that her baby had gone missing.
Police immediately launched an investigation and upon further inquiry revealed that Shumba had crushed her baby`s skull with a rock leading to his death.
She later led the police to the bush where she had dumped her baby`s remains in a plastic bag.
Shumba also confirmed to the police that Mapfumo was not the biological father to the infant.
Contacted for a comment, Midlands police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende said she was still compiling the report.
