Deprived of a son, man kills his six-day-old baby girl

A 45-year-old gift shop owner in the northern Thai province of Chiang Mai has been arrested and charged with killing his six-day-old baby girl, reported yesterday (Sept 24, 2020).

The shop owner already has two daughters aged 7 and 11, and he was upset when the third baby girl was born six days ago. He drove the baby to a parking lot and force-fed her with toilet cleaning liquid.

He later drove to a desolate spot not far from a cemetery in Doi Saket District of Chiang Mai, where he buried the baby.

Arriving home, the husband told his wife that he had killed her baby. The police later came and took him to the police station.
