The young man confessed to the crime

The minor had confessed to the crime during a long and painful interrogation before the magistrate of the Juvenile Court, Maria Agata Russo, during the hearing for the validation of his arrest for voluntary homicide, carried out the day after the crime by the mobile squad of the Police Headquarters who investigated the case. The magistrate, accepting the request of the prosecutor Carla Santocono, had issued a precautionary order.

The circumstantial elements are very serious

The prosecutors underlined that the circumstantial elements were very serious and had emerged against the 15-year-old from the police investigations which reconstructed how the murder “had occurred in the family environment”. According to the indictment, the 15-year-old would not have accepted his mother’s decision to leave the house and move away with his younger brother away from their neighborhood, San Cristoforo, and from the family of the woman’s ex-partner. “The magistrate’s order – highlighted the prosecutor Santocono after the validation of the detention – crystallizes the reconstruction of the material conduct of the young man who in recent months lived with his paternal grandmother having determined to leave his mother’s house despite the fact that she had maintained an attitude protective of his son, in the face of the hostilities fueled by his father’s family, detained for some time for serious crimes, including against the person”.
