A baby boy who celebrated his first birthday just last month was hacked to death by his own mother in Mataasnakahoy, Batangas.
In a report of Jaime Santos on GMA News “Saksi” on Wednesday, the mother was alone at the rented apartment with the victim when the crime occurred. The father was away working.
During the police investigation, the baby boy suffered from a wound in his neck.
Relatives and authorities said they found mother staring blankly in the corner, and the child was already dead.
Police also recovered a bolo the mother used to kill her baby boy.
According to police, they did not find any indication that the suspect was using illegal drugs. However, she repeatedly claimed that she got furious and killed the child.
The suspect has now been detained at the police station on a charge of parricide.
