The accused Natasha Mugwenjere (32) yesterday appeared before Mutare magistrate Prisca Manhibi who remanded her in custody to November 23.

The court was told that Mugwenjere was a mental patient.

The State alleges that on November 9, Charlotte Muromba left her daughter in the custody of the accused.

The mother of the now-deceased had reportedly gone to fetch water at a nearby borehole.

The baby reportedly began to cry and this irritated the accused, who stabbed her twice on the chest with a knife.

When Charlotte came back, she found her baby bleeding.

They rushed her to Mutare Provincial Hospital where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
