*Man kills four-month-old son during fight with wife over paternity*
A 23-year-old Kenyan man has been arrested by the police for the murder of his four-month-old baby in the Gatanga Murang’a County of Kenya.
Local media reported that the suspect, Mark Njunguna, doubted the paternity of the child, leading to a confrontation and quarrel with his wife 23-year-old Muthoni Kariuki.
Njunguna was said to have smashed the defenceless baby’s head on the wall during the dispute, resulting in the baby’s death.
CapitalFM reported that Njunguna was seen on CCTV footage beating his wife who watched helplessly on the floor as he smashed their son on the wall.
The Kihumbuini Police Station was told that Njunguna had threatened to kill his wife if she dared to report the matter.
Njunguna was however arrested by the police after Muthoni managed to sneak out of the house to notify her father-in-law Stephen Njuguna.
