KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistani police have arrested a couple on charges of stabbing their 3-month-old baby to death in a black magic ritual they believed would get them rich.
Police officer Hazoor Bukhsh says officers recovered a 3-year-old girl who they feared was also going to be killed.
The couple was arrested Monday in a house in the city of Karachi.
The body of their baby girl was exhumed from their backyard.
Bukhsh says a witch doctor advised them to kill the girl after telling them it would make them rich.
