    Alexander Forba has been charged with murder after allegedly picking his girlfriend's baby up by its feet and using it as a weapon to beat her. The killing took place at a gas station in Pretoria after an argument about the baby's paternity, and medics found the infant covered in a blanket and choking on its own vomit when they arrived.

    The baby was believed to be a girl but hasn't been identified.

    Forba - a foreign national whose nationality is not stated - has already appeared in court but the initial hearing's been delayed until next Tuesday. He hasn't been bailed.

    The mother is reported to have a wound to her forehead.

    I think the baby was just two or three days old, and the Times article I linked just stuck a story on at the end, about another six-month old who was killed; without explaining it's another case entirely...I think.
