The mother was briefly placed in police custody for voluntary homicide aggravated by two circumstances: by an ascendant and on a minor (under) 15 years old. Given her state of mental health, deemed incompatible with police custody, she was hospitalized in psychiatry.

An autopsy of the child’s body must be performed.”This will involve characterizing the injuries in more detail, determining what caused the death, and comparing these elements with the mother’s explanations, when she can be heard.“, added the magistrate.”To this day, it is particularly appropriate to ask whether this woman could have killed her daughter in a fit of rage, or whether she could have suffered a breakdown after discovering that the little girl was dead. This is one of the hypotheses to be studied.“.
