14-year old Strangles Mom To Death

A 14-year-old boy in South Africa has been arrested for allegedly strangling his mother to death, Saturday Star reports.

The newspaper reported that the boy had confessed to his aunt on Thursday evening after the woman was killed.

According to the report, the aunt said the boy had arrived at her house around 10pm and told her the story. The aunt's house was about 10km from the boy's home.

He reportedly told his aunt: "I strangled my mother and when I left she wasn't breathing."
Apparently the mother had been looking for her pink hat and wanted to know from her son where it was.

"He told me his mother started beating him with a stick and he blocked the lashes. She then poured water from a kettle on him and tried to hit him with a brick. He said he then pushed her to the ground and strangled her," the aunt was quoted saying.

The paper reported that the aunt went to the boy's home in the morning and found his mother lying on the floor. She called the police.

The boy was treated for burn wounds in hospital.
