A MUM has been arrested after allegedly killing her daughter because she wet herself and stuffing her body in a duffel bag.

But when officers searched her home they reportedly found the little girl’s body inside a bag in a wardrobe.
Thomas admitted during her arrest that little Dejah fell to the ground and would not stop crying, so she tried to keep her quiet and gave her water, KTNV reports.
But when she wet herself the raging mum hit her over the head and knocked her out, she allegedly confessed.
She is then said to have wrapped her daughter’s body in several bin bags and stuffed her in the duffel bag “to cover the smell”.
