Soldier beheads five-year-old son

‘A soldier has been arrested in the Zimbabwean town of Chitungwiza for beheading his five-year-old son, clubbing his mother-in-law to death and attempting to kill his stepdaughter, reports said. [..]

He is reported to have had an argument with his wife in the early hours of the morning. She ran out of their bedroom and the soldier then turned on other members of the family.

“Sibanda allegedly took a hoe, which he used to slay his mother-in-law. He proceeded to chop off his son’s head using the same hoe,” police spokesman Andrew Phiri said.

“We shot him in the leg after he slit and pulled out his dead son’s intestines,” Phiri told the Sunday Mail.’
