A Limpopo woman will appear in the Bolobedu Magistrate's Court on Monday after her four-year-old son was strangled, police said on Sunday.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the 21-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday, after an autopsy revealed the boy was strangled.

She previously claimed to police she was a babysitter looking after the boy when he died on April 19. Mulaudzi said she later admitted that her ex-boyfriend forced her at gunpoint to kill her son. She claimed the boy reminded him of another of her ex-boyfriends that he had murdered.

The man was wanted by police in a separate case of murder committed in December last year.

“(He) is on the run and efforts to capture him are underway,” Mulaudzi said. - Sapa
