23-year-old Mark Njuguna, has been arrested by the Police for allegedly killing his four-month-old son in Gatanga Murang’a, Kenya.

In a video that has gone viral online, the suspect was seen physically assaulting his wife Mary Muthoni, with a belt while their baby was crying on the floor.

The suspect later grabbed the infant, who he claims is not his biological son and tossed him over the sofa.

The baby was said to have died on the spot after landing on the concrete floor.

According to the police report, the incident which happened in the early hours of Tuesday, January 25, was reported by the suspect’s father.

Njuguna’s father, Samuel Kigumo, was alerted by his daughter-in-law at about 2:45 am after the incident happened.

Kiguro said Muthoni managed to escape from the house after her husband threatened to kill her if she raised an alarm to alert neighbors.

The two are believed to have picked a quarrel after the man questioned whether he is the biological father of the boy.

“My daughter-in-law came running to my house telling me that her husband has killed their baby boy,” he said.

“We are still in shock because we don’t understand why he would do such a heinous act and kill an innocent child,” added Kiguro.

The body was taken to General Kago mortuary in Thika awaiting postmortem as police delve deeper into the matter.
