The woman accused of killing her six-year-old daughter in October 2022 in Gijón committed suicide this Sunday in the cell she occupied in the Asturias Penitentiary Center, as judicial sources have confirmed to EFE.
The events for which the woman was imprisoned occurred almost a year ago, on October 30, when the police found the lifeless body of the girl, Olivia, in the apartment where they had both lived for a few months, in the El Llano neighborhood. According to her mother, the cause of her death was the ingestion of drugs that she had administered herself. One day before the events, the judge had granted custody of the minor to her father after several years of litigation with her mother.
The police had moved to the apartment, located at number 71 Gaspar García Laviana Street, after receiving a call in which relatives warned that they knew nothing about the mother and the girl. The agents managed to enter the apartment, located on the fourth floor, and found the deceased girl lying in bed next to her mother.
The woman indicated that she had taken pills and was evacuated, already detained, to the Jove hospital in Gijón for observation throughout the night, before being transferred the next day to the police station.
The minor’s father, Eugenio García, who was alerted at his home in Segovia by police officers, moved to Gijón in shock, where he told journalists that he had just obtained custody after a judicial process that had lasted for five years. years. The girl had been left in the care of her mother during the weekend and her father was scheduled to move with her youngest to Segovia the following Monday.
