A Bahraini man murdered his four-month-old baby and caused the death of his wife after becoming convinced that the child had been possessed by an evil spirit.

The man threw the baby out of the window of his car while driving down a highway in Manama, Bahrain, at which point his wife fled the vehicle and was hit by a truck.
