A 23-year-old man in Gatanga Murang’a county (Kenya) knocked his 4-month-old son against the wall leading to his death following a dispute with his wife.
Mark Njuguna, according to a report filed at the Kihumbuini Police Station, had raised doubts on the paternity of the child leading to the confrontation.
The suspect held by the police pending a further probe threatened his wife – 23-year-old Muthoni Kariuki – not to report the matter threatening to kill her if she dared do so.
Muthoni however managed to sneak out of the house following the incident that occurred at 1.30 am and notified her father-in-law Stephen Njuguna.
CCTV footage of the scene showed the suspect whipping his wife who was wailing helplessly on the floor before picking their son laying next to her and tossing him against the wall. The boy died on impact.
