She added that the man showered more love on the boy to the detriment of her own children.

Mariam said: “Greed and jealousy made me to kill the son of my husband’s second wife. She had a male child and I was not happy that our husband was showing her more care.”

On how she killed her rival’s son, the suspect said the boy left his mother and came to her room on the day she poisoned him.
