London – A young mother in Germany killed her newborn son by slitting his throat, barely 30 minutes after delivering it, as she feared the child would be an interference in her sex life, a court heard.

Judges were told that Nadine Koenig, 20, from German state of Bavaria, smothered her newborn son before killing him with a Stanley knife. She then went out to a disco, Daily Mail reported Monday.

According to prosecutor Ulrike Klein, the child was a responsibility that she could not handle.

“You couldn’t bear the thought of your far-reaching sexual and social contacts being jeopardized by this baby,” Klein added.

Koenig, who had concealed her pregnancy from her parents, had given birth at their home last February, the court in Regensburg city heard.
