A three-month-old baby was killed when an attempt on the mother’s life failed in Middleburg’s Dullstroom Township, in Mpumalanga.

According to police, a vehicle owned by a friend of the stepfather, was used in the attempt in driving over the mother, but failed when the mother, who had the infant in her arms, ran and dropped the baby boy in the road.

Reports say the baby died instantly on impact with the car.

Captain Leonard Hlathi said the 24-year-old man deliberately drove towards the mother. He had allegedly intended killing his 21-year-old wife after they could not ‘resolve’ a problem.

Both were arrested and charged with murder and domestic violence.

They will appear in the Machadodorp magistrate’s court soon.
