A woman was arrested for burning her baby while trying to punish her husband for cheating, police in Zimbabwe said.

The 27-year-old mother, Fortune Vutete of Harare, allegedly killed her young son after accidentally burning him with hot water while trying to hurt her husband.

Vutete wanted to spill a pot of boiling water on her husband after she found a video of him engaging in a sex act with his brother’s wife.

6-month old Munesuishe Travis Mironga was sleeping on the couch with his father, 32-year-old Owen Mironga, when his mother attempted to burn her husband with hot water.
