Mum and lover behead nine-year-old son in Brazil before burning body on barbecue

A mother and her female partner have been jailed for a total of 129 years for stabbing, dismembering, skinning, and barbecuing the latter’s own nine-year-old son.

Rosana Auri da Silva Candido, 27, and lover Kacyla Pryscila Santiago Damasceno Pessoa, 28, were sentenced in the Brazilian administrative region of Samambaia on November 25 to 65 and 64 years in prison respectively.

The pair was charged with the murder of Rosana’s nine-year-old son Rhuan Maycon da Silva Castro on the night of May 31 this year.

Rhuan was knifed 11 times in total in the chest and eyes while he was sleeping, mostly by Rosana, as Kacyla held him down.

The pair then dismembered his body and skinned his face.

They tried to burn his remains on a barbecue grill before abandoning the idea and packing the body parts into two rucksacks and a suitcase instead.

The police were called by two young witnesses who saw Rosana disposing of the suitcase near a nursery in the administrative region.

One of the two boys opened the abandoned suitcase out of curiosity and Rhuan’s head rolled out with a knife sticking out of it.
