A girl in South Africa stands accused of murdering a two-year-old and raping another four-year-old in a case that is shocking that African nation.
The incident occurred in Jan Kempdorp, an agricultural town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.
The dam where the mother said she found her child dead.
The 13-year-old primary school girl was arrested and arraigned for the crimes after initially acting as a witness saying that the drowning of the 2-year-old was an accident.
Authorities charged the girl with murder after another witness came forward to accuse the girl of the May 25 murder of little Refilwe Ramohlabi.
News agencies had few details on the rape charge but the accusation was leveled by authorities along with the murder charge.
The 2-year-old murder victim’s mother spoke out last week.
“My daughter was last seen playing with a neighbor’s child in the backyard. When it became late I started looking for her, but she and her two-year-old friend were nowhere to be found.
“One person apparently saw them leaving with a young girl (the suspect) and I went to the police to report them missing. They told me to search for her myself,” she said.
“When I arrived at the dam, I saw Refilwe lying on her stomach with her arms spread out beside her. It was the most painful sight I ever had to endure. That indescribable pain has never left me,” she added.
The little girl’s mother claimed that the accused 13-year-old was on the scene of the 2-year-old’s drowning and acted as if she was a family friend, but the dead girl’s mother says she had never seen the teen in her life.
Some neighbors said that the 13-year-old was known as a troubled girl that was mean to other kids.
Police reported that the raped girl and the murdered girl has wounds around their privates and had sticks “forced down their throats” by the 13-year-old.
