A mother identified as Marilza Medeiros da Conceicao has been arrested by the police for allegedly selling eight of her ten children in order to get money to buy drugs in Brazil.

Mum Arrested For Allegedly Selling Eight Of Her Children 'Just To Buy Drugs'

It was gathered that the authorities only got wind of her horrific dealings last April after she allegedly sold her one and a half old daughter to a family in the Saquarema, Região dos Lagos region for the equivalent of just £27.60.

The mother-of-ten was arrested and taken into custody on Tuesday for “promising or carrying out the delivery of a child to a third party, upon payment or reward.”

Following her arrest by the police yesterday, Marilza Medeiros da Conceicao allegedly told authorities that she exchanged her daughter for drugs, which is believed to be “narcotics.”

Police have now opened an investigation into whether the woman also sold her other seven children. They are only aware of the whereabouts of one, who is living with their father.

The SUN UK quoted the police chief, Milton Siqueira Junior saying: “The inquiry dates from April of last year. She sold her one-and-a-half-month-old daughter.

“The child was found at the time in Saquarema, Regiao dos Lagos (Lakes Region), and handed over to the Child Services to be taken care of.

“Now, she has 10 more children, but only one was with her, the other is with its father, and we are investigating if she also sold the others.”

The 42-year-old woman, Elizangela da Silva Pacheco, who allegedly bought the child, is also facing punishment over the trade.

The judge said she will now have to carry out community service for six months, and she will also be made to pay three months’ minimum wages to a local charity that helps to educate children.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a mother strangled her 11-year-old son to death because she was fed up with him playing on his cell phone late at night in Brazil.
