The grandmother of an 8-year-old Free State girl has been arrested for beating her to death.
Sergeant Malebo Khosana said the grandmother was arrested this week.
The child died a week ago at an informal housing unit in New Stands near Thabong, Welkom.
Khosana said on the day of the attack the grandmother left the child with a male visitor while she went to buy beer.
When she returned she reportedly became furious because the child had eaten some meat from a pot. The woman then apparently began beating the child with a stick.
Khosana said paramedics were called in and they certified the child as dead.
He said the police were not initially informed of the child's death and the mother of the child arranged with a mortuary to fetch the body.
It was only after the incident was reported to the police on Tuesday that police arrested the grandmother. - Sapa
