Valencian woman held over death of her five-year-old

A woman has been arrested in Valencia for allegedly killing her five-year-old child. Early reports are that the mother suffocated the child in the absence of the father and then attempted suicide.

A refuge in Almassera, Valencia, yesterday (May 23) was the scene of the horror, as the child from the town died of apparent strangulation, allegedly by her own mother. The Guarda Civil acted swiftly to arrest the woman – who had very minor injuries – on suspicion of causing the death, and are now awaiting post mortem examination reports.
