The Ombudsman for Children filed a complaint on Wednesday for the death of a one-year-old and 11-month-old boy in the commune of Renca, Metropolitan region. The infant, who had injuries caused by third parties, died on Tuesday in the emergency room of the Roberto del Río Hospital. The minor’s mother and her partner were detained by personnel from the Investigative Police (PDI).
The complaint of the Ombudsman for Children is directed against the child’s mother, for the crime of parricide, and against the woman’s partner, for the crime of rape with homicide.
The Homicide Brigade of the PDI arrested both people after the first steps in the case. In the process, police officers detected injuries on the minor’s body “attributable to the participation of third parties,” said the PDI commissioner Gabriel Alarconslogan Cooperative Radio.
“These records added within the investigation, with the visual inspection of the home where this child resided and other records incorporated in the course of this investigation, are provided to the Public Ministry,” added Alarcón.
From the Municipality of Renca they lamented the death of the child and announced the presentation of a lawsuit against those who are responsible for the fact.
They also indicated that the mayor of Renca, Claudio Castro (IND), contacted the Undersecretary for Children and the Ombudsman for Children with the aim of accelerating state protection for the minor’s sister.
