Mother kills son over 'small penis'

An Indonesian woman drowned her son after being worried his "small penis" would affect his prospects in the future, police told Thursday.

The Jakarta-based woman told her 9-year-old son had a small penis prior to being circumcised, and that it appeared to shrink further after the operation, a police spokesman told the Agence France-Presse.

"She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis," spokesman Rikwanto said.

"She drowned her son in a bathtub filled with water. She then dressed him and laid him on a bed. After that, she went to a nearby police office to report her crime."

The woman was said to be entirely conscious of what she has done, but police ordered a psychological test to assess her mental condition.
