The woman tied her son Loris Stival with electrical cables and abandoned his body in a remote gully in Santa Croce, Sicily and pretended that he was abducted.
Dailymail reports that Police began to suspect the boy’s mother when CCTV footage at the school did not back up her story. She was found guilty of the boy’s murder and of concealing a body.
Prosecutors branded her an ‘egocentric, manipulative liar.’ When Panarello confessed that her son had been killed, she blamed her husband’s father Andrea Stival.
The evil woman later confessed at a hearing that Stival had helped to plot and then carried out the murder because Loris had caught them having s*x.
Stival is being investigated as an accessory to murder, reports Italian media.
He has denied the claim and is threatening to sue his daughter-in-law for slander, it has emerged.
He said: ‘It is just another lie of that crazy woman.’
Stival also denied any role in his grandson’s death, adding:
‘That accusation is something completely out of this world. I went mad for my grandson, my little angel.
‘Now there’s a need for peace and justice. My stomach turned upside down, downgrading a grandfather’s love.’
