Mum 'kills baby son, sells ear for $20'

http://news-updations.blogspot.comA ZIMBABWEAN woman killed her infant son and sold one of his ears for $US20 ($24) to a traditional healer and wanted for ritual murders in neighbouring Mozambique, police say.

"We can confirm that the woman Christine Hofisi from Chipinge strangled her 18-month-old son to death and cut off his left ear," deputy national police spokesman Oliver Mandipaka said.

"Hofisi sold the ear to a traditional healer notorious for ritual murders in the Mozambique.

"She sold the ear for $US20 ($A23.76) but was given $US10 ($A11.88) with the balance to be paid later.

"She is currently in custody in Chipinge. We are still investigating the case of the murder and the investigations will extend to to Mozambique where the traditional healer is based."

Mr Mandipaka said the traditional healer, known as Maheza, was facing criminal charges in his home country after being found with the 11 human skulls, but he skipped bail and is now believed to be living in the border area.
