A mother killed her eight-year-old son after the boy caught her having s*x with with his grandfather. The woman identified as Veronica Panarello has been jailed for 30 years in Italy.
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.
She had told police that she took the son to school and that he had disappeared by the time she came to check on him in the afternoon.
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.’
