BIKITA - A 22-year-old woman from Magare village under Chief Mazungunye shocked the Bikita Magistrates' Court when she pleaded guilty to a charge of killing her own baby and throwing the body into a Blair toilet.
It was the State's case that on March 14 at around 23:00 hrs, Beauty Gwariro gave birth to a baby girl, her fourth child, at Dhewa Bvumavaranda Bottle Store at Silveira business centre.
After giving birth, the accused killed the baby by strangling her using a string, wrapped the dead body with her skirt and threw her into a Blair toilet.
The offence was discovered by Nelson Zimunya who saw a blood stained skirt in the toilet and reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of the accused and retrieval of the infants' body.
Bikita resident magistrate Caroline Tafira was expected to sentence the accused this week.
