A mother chopped her 11-month-old son to death in Annotto Bay, St Mary yesterday then turned herself over to the police in a bizarre case of infanticide that shocked the country.
Police did not name the mother, who is now in custody pending further investigations. However, they identified the baby as Lindon Madison.
Yesterday, the Jamaica Observer was told that the mother was transferred from the Annotto Bay Police Station to the Castleton Police Station which houses female prisoners in that parish.
The macabre incident occurred at the woman's home on Fort George Road, near Annotto Bay Primary School at about 6:30 am.
The woman lived with the child's father.
Police report that she arrived at the station about 7:30 am and told them that she had killed her baby. The police accompanied her to the house where the baby was found with multiple chop wounds. His head was almost severed.
The baby, who would have had his first birthday next week, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
