MARAN - Police detained a woman for allegedly killing her two-year-old son when she slit his throat at their home here on Sunday (June 17) night.

Pahang CID chief Senior Asst Comm Othman Nayan said the 31-year-old woman was said to be in a state of hallucination when she committed the horrific act at a house in Jengka 13 here.

The woman's husband, who caught her in the act using a knife to slit the toddler's throat, quickly shoved her aside in the 8.40pm incident.

The boy was rushed to the Jengka Hospital by his father but was pronounced dead by hospital staff.
