Mother Beats 4-Year-Old Son To Death Over Meat

A mother has reportedly beaten her 4-year-old son to death over a piece of meat.

A wicked mother in Ebonyi State, Esther Mmahi Ukpa, is currently crying her eyes out in regret after she allegedly beat her 4-year-old son, Samson, to death for taking a piece of meat given to her husband at an occasion, without her permission. The 40-year-old mother has been arrested by the state police command for the alleged murder.

The incident, according to reports, happened when the boy's father, Ogbonnaya Ukpa, attended a party and brought home some meat.

The mother told investigators that she put the meat in the fridge, but the following day, when she wanted to eat it she saw only leftover bones.

She asked her son if he ate the meat, and when he confessed, Esther proceeded to give hi the beating of his life, one he did not survive. The father claimed that he was not home when his wife beat the child.

A spokesperson for the police said that the father of the child filed a complaint against his wife and she was promptly arrested and charged with a one-count charge of murder.
