The father who killed his two-month-old son after throwing a cell phone at him in Valparaíso de Goiás was preventively arrested this morning. The arrest was made at the request of the delegate responsible for the case, Samya Barros, who saw indications that the aggression against the child was not culpable – that is, without the intention to kill.
The delegate explained that the request for preventive detention against the boy’s father was granted on Monday (3) by the Justice, but, because of the restriction of the arrest of voters during the electoral period, he was only detained today.
Among the evidence found by the police are other broken cell phones, which would also have been the target of rages from the aggressor, a bedspread with cuts, which would have been made to disguise bloodstains, and other bloody objects in the house.
The statements of the baby’s mother, identified by the police as “Bryan”, and relatives were also considered by the delegate in the arrest warrant.
We realized that there was already a relationship of domestic violence even before the injury suffered by the child. The mother declared that it was already the fourth cell phone that the author broke in the same way, only, unfortunately, now the victim was the child.
