Polokwane - A Limpopo woman is to appear in the Bolobedu Magistrate's Court on Monday on a murder charge after she allegedly strangled her 4-year-old son to appease a boyfriend.

The 21-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday, after an autopsy revealed the boy was strangled. She had told the police she was a babysitter looking after the boy when he died on April 19.

She later admitted that her ex-boyfriend forced her at gunpoint to kill her son. She claimed the boy reminded him of another of her ex-boyfriends that he had murdered.

    This woman appears to have covered one murder and committed another. She must not be shown any mercy when it comes to sentencing.

      @Simnnikiwe - actually not quite 24/7. Interesting that you have noticed that - are you on 24/7? Please note I do it on my own PC at home, not on an employer's PC nor in company time. If I was News24 admin 90% of the comments posted would be removed by me without being reported as they are racist, incite violence etc.,

      Oh Marion, Marion, Marion !These forums are a good way for black & white to interact & really NO harm is ever done.

      @Rob - I believe lots of harm is done. But then that is just my opinion.

    Thank God your not admin - all we would have is Marion's oppinion on everything! I too have noticed your inane comments - the one time you got yourself in such a corner you completely contradicted your self! As for your latest sweeping statement - have you ever had a gun pointed at your head by a drunk, drugged, mad man probably threatening to kill everyone if she does not comply? - my heart goes out to her - her life is basically over anyway, try living with that judge Marion.. then get back to your boring life at home on your PC. Don't bother with a response - my lunch times over.
