A young woman from Brazil and her 3-month-old baby passed away tragically after her husband poisoned her.
35-year-old Luiz Edivaldo de Souza allegedly poisoned his wife using rat poison, which indirectly affected his little baby son too because he was breastfeeding from her. Now, he has been charged for the gruesome act which left both baby and mother dead.
His wife was identified as Josiele Lopses who breastfed her child and hence unknowingly passed on the hazardous poison to him.
De Souza then attempted to drive the duo towards the side of the wood and went about burying their bodies, mentioned local media outlets.
Lopes was given rat poison in her food with the incident being carried out at her own home which is located in Itaperma, Brazil. The mum was breastfeeding her 3-month-old child during those days. For this reason, it is believed that the poison entered into her breast milk and hence passed on to the little child who ingested the contaminated milk.
The father received charges for homicide in the month of October with a court ruling being announced just last week. Therefore, he will reportedly face a major trial at his hometown in Itapema.
Meanwhile, authorities claim that the father committed the horrifying crime as his wife felt it was now time for the couple to separate from one another.
Last year, both mother and her young baby went missing in the month of September. Little did anyone know about how they had been killed by a loved one so close. Soon, police discovered the bodies, just a week later.
Throughout the entire time, the father allegedly sent out messages to all of the relatives from his wife’s side of the family, posing as her. Little did anyone know that it was actually him behind it all, right before he blocked the contacts, one by one.
