A mother killed her eight-year-old son after she caught her having sex with his grandfather.
The woman, Veronica Panarello has been sentenced to serve a 30-year jail term after she was found guilty of murdering her son, Loris Stival.
According to Metro UK, Panarello strangled the poor boy with electrical cables and then abandoned his body in a remote gully in Santa Croce, Sicily.
In her bid to cover up her atrocious act, Panarello told the police that her son was kidnapped claiming that she had taken him to school but went to pick him up only to find out that he was nowhere to be found.
CCTV footage from the school proved that she had not dropped him off that day and police started treating her as a suspect.
Prosecutors dubbed her an ‘egocentric, manipulative liar’ following her continual denial of committing the act even after she was found guilty of killing and hiding his body.
When Panarello confessed that her son had been killed in November 2014, she blamed her husband’s father Andrea Stival.
She told an earlier hearing that he had helped to plot and then carried out the murder because Loris had caught them having sex.
Stival who is being investigated as an accessory to murder has denied the claim and is threatening to sue his daughter-in-law for slander.
