A monster mum had reportedly confessed to torturing her baby daughter by cutting her with razor blades and injecting bleach into her veins.
Ezgi Korucu is accused of torturing her defenceless 18-month-old daughter at their home in the district of Avcilar in the north-western Turkish city of Istanbul.
The 28-year-old was arrested after her last trip to hospital with the sick youngster in February 2019 when doctors finally realised the child was being tortured.
According to reports, Ezgi, who was detained and released twice before, said she realised that this time would be the last and therefore confessed to the abuse.
She was questioned by prosecutors and was quoted in local media as saying: “I could not love my daughter and I wanted her to die, slowly.

"So I decided to torture her. I tormented her with razor cuts on her head, legs, arms, chest, and eyelids.
"I injected liquid soap and bleach into her veins using a syringe. This started when my daughter was one month old.
“There was an investigation against me, but I denied the allegations. I carried out the torture when my family was asleep or not around to see it."
Prosecutors are demanding that she serve up to 20 years for “deliberately attempting to kill a child, aggravated by the use of torture”.
The torturing is believed to have started when the tot was a month old
Ezgi wrote letters to her family from prison.
In one note to her daughter, she said: “I apologise to you and your siblings. Please forgive me. I am not a bad mother."
She also wrote to her husband Eray Korucu, saying: "Thank you very much for not shaming me in front of my children. We managed 13 years together somehow, one way or another."
Her lawyer indicated that she was scared to tell the truth and that in reality her alleged acts were a result of the abuse she suffered in her marriage.
He said: "My client wanted to go to jail to get away from her living conditions, and that is why she deliberately lied.
"This woman had raised two children before, and if the accusations were true, she would have harmed her other children too."
Ezgi remains in custody as the trial continues.
