THE woman found guilty of killing eight-year old Gabriel Cruz is being moved today Tuesday from the Acebuche prison in Almeria to a jail in Brieva in Avila.

The Almeria Provincial Court sentenced Quesada to a maximum permanent reviewable prison sentence, making her the first woman in Spain to serve life with a possibility of parole after a minimum fixed term.
