A MUM allegedly strangled her newborn baby to death with its own umbilical cord moments after giving birth in a bid to cover up her affair with her boss.
The woman, known as Fatma B, was 16 years old when she killed the baby at her home in Gaziantep, Turkey.
Fatma allegedly kept the body in a fridge for three days before she asked her younger brother Mehmet to bury it.
The incident which took place six years ago, occurred after she slept with her textile factory boss.
The 14-year-old boy followed his sister’s request but only recently reported the crime to the police.
Local media reports said he had been unable to live with the guilt.
Police have now launched an investigation into the incident.
Officials have confirmed that Mehmet took them to where he hid the baby, in a nearby basement.
He was arrested alongside his sister who moved to a different part of the country.
The investigation continues.
