According to investigators, the baby that died was the woman’s younger child, who was also mentally ill. . The woman killed the baby as she thought it would be a problem to the infant and herself in view of the health condition, according to the police, who added that the woman admitted the crime while being questioned.
She was brought into custody after a case was filed, according to the police.
