A wicked mum who brutally murdered her eight-year-old son after he allegedly discovered she was having an affair with his grandfather has been jailed.
Vicious Veronica Panarello throttled her son Loris Stival with electrical cables and abandoned his body in a remote gully after he found out about the fling.
The “manipulative” mum wept as she was jailed for 30 years at a court in Italy on Monday.
According to Daily Mirror,Panarello, 28, had tried to pretend her son had been abducted to cover up the horrendous killing in November 2014.She told Italian police in Santa Croce, Sicily, she had taken him to school and that he had disappeared by the time she came to collect him in the afternoon.
Officers began to suspect the boy’s mother, judge Andrea Reale was told, when CCTV footage at the school did not back up her story.
The boy’s body was eventually found by a hunter. He had suffered a severe head wound.
She was found guilty of the boy’s murder and of concealing a body.When Panarello finally confessed that her son had been killed and blamed her husband’s father Andrea Stival.
She told an earlier court hearing that he had helped to plot and then carried out the murder because Loris had caught them having sex.
Mr Stival has denied the claim and is threatening to sue his daughter-in-law for slander, it has emerged.
