CHARGES WILL soon be laid against the St Mary mother who reportedly chopped her 11-month-old son to death.
According to Cedric Allen, superintendent of police in charge of St Mary, "It is now a matter of making sure that we do what we are supposed to do to determine what charges will be laid against her. The investigators are trying to gather as much information as possible so that we can determine which way we go."
On Thursday, the country was shocked by the news that the mother, reportedly of unsound mind, chopped her baby to death.
According to reports, at approxi-mately 7:30 a.m., the woman showed up at the Annotto Bay Police Station covered in blood and told them she had killed the child.
The police accompanied her to the house on Fort George Road, near Annotto Bay Primary School, where the body of 11-month-old Lindon Madison was found with multiple chop wounds and his head almost severed.
The baby, who would have had his first birthday next week, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
