A teenager killed his aunt after she did not allow him to watch adult videos.

The 17-year-old boy of Zimbabwe, was arrested for allegedly fatally stabbing his aunt after she confiscated his cellphone after she caught him watching adult videos.

The boy who studies at the St. Bernard’s High School in Bulawayo, is accused of killing his 46-year-old aunt with a kitchen knife on Wednesday night.

The teenager lived with his aunt because his mother was in South Africa, where she works.

Relatives said that the teenager was rebellious, often refused to go to school and ran away from the home several times.

Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Precious Simango said that the student was arrested and he is in police custody.

“We have arrested a 17-year-old boy in connection with the murder and he will soon appear in court to face charges of murder,” said Simango.

Cephas Ncube, spokesperson for the family of the murdered woman, said that the teenager tried to cover up the murder by ransacking the house to give the impression that someone had attacked her.

He then called neighbors and told them that his aunt had been stabbed during a home invasion. However, the teen was busted after police found that he had a cut with blood on his hand.
