A mother killed her daughter because she wanted her to go to heaven, according to police in Belgium.

Zemst police said that they have arrested the 27-year-old mother, who was not identified, after being accused of putting her 2-year-old daughter on a back yard grill and cooking her alive.

The suspect has been charged with one count of murder.

According to the police investigation, the woman became depressed following a divorce.

On Sunday, at around 7:00 p.m., the suspect’s neighbors called police after hearing screams and seeing smoke coming out of her home.

Police and firefighters who arrived at the scene, found the body of the 2-year-old girl burned on the grill.

The woman told police that she burned her child because only cremated bodies are allowed to enter heaven.

The woman then attempted to commit suicide.

The woman’s defense attorney told a judge that she suffers from mental illness following a difficult relationship and divorce.

The court ordered the woman to undergo a mental health evaluation before proceeding with the criminal trial.
