A housemaid who murdered a 10-month old baby has claimed that she was possessed by evil spirits to commit the act.

A 22-year-old housemaid in Zimbabwe, Violet Moyo, has been arrested for murdering a 10-month-old baby, Ethan Phiri, by wrapping him in a blanket, put him in a drawer, closed it, and went to watch television.

Three hours later, Moyo went to check on the boy to make sure he was dead.

Late last year, cases of housemaids' brutality on their charges with some leading to death of little children was rampant.

A Uganda maid made viral news when she was caught on tape brutalizing a toddler and the revelation drew lots of worldwide condemnation.

Another disgruntled maid in Abuja, Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory, was reported to have strangled a 3-year-old girl to death because her mistress refused to allow her travel to her village to celebrate the upcoming Christmas.
