A 28- year-old Sigatoka single mother who allegedly buried her baby after giving birth last week will appear in court on Monday.

Fiji’s Criminal Investigation Department director Vakacegu Toduadua said the woman has been charged with infanticide.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the incident was brought to light when the woman surrendered herself to the Sigatoka Police with the information last week.

Toduadua said she is still in police custody and expected to appear in the Sigatoka Magistrates Court.
