(AP) KARACHI, Pakistan - Pakistani police have arrested a couple on charges of stabbing their 3-month-old baby to death in a black magic ritual they believed would get them rich.

Police officer Hazoor Bukhsh says officers recovered a 3-year-old girl who they feared was also going to be killed.

The couple was arrested Monday in a house in the city of Karachi.

The body of their baby girl was exhumed from their backyard.

Bukhsh says a witch doctor advised them to kill the girl after telling them it would make them rich.
