A 32-year-old mother has been charged with murder for allegedly killing her 2-year-old daughter last week.

Nakalema allegedly cut open her daughter's stomach open at night and removed internal organs for ritual sacrifice.

She was arrested together with another woman believed to be a house help after she took the baby to the hospital for treatment -- raising a red-flag.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson said the two will be arraigned in court after Resident State Attorney's advice on the case.

Mental examination

The 32-year-old woman was subjected to a mental examination after providing contradicting statements.

She claimed she didn't cut her daughter's stomach but rather it was "Satan who did it".

Results from medical personnel revealed that the woman was "sane and acted in normal senses" -- according to authorities.
