An Indonesian mother who allegedly drowned her 9-year-old son in a bathtub claims she did it because she worried that his “small penis” would hurt his prospects in life, a police spokesperson said Thursday.

The 38-year-old woman from Jakarta told police that her son’s penis was small prior to being circumcised, and that it appeared even smaller after the procedure.

"She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis," said police spokesperson Rikwanto, who goes by one name.

"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."

Rikwanto also reported that while police ordered a psychological assessment of the woman’s mental condition, she was fully conscious of the acts she committed.
