A 41-year-old mother in whose home the lifeless bodies of two babies were discovered on Thursday in her freezer in Bédoin (Vaucluse) was indicted on Friday and remanded in custody.
She is being prosecuted for “murder of a minor” under the age of 15, said Avignon prosecutor Florence Galtier.
Questioned in the context of a preliminary investigation opened for “murder of a minor” under the age of 15, the suspect had in custody “evolutionary statements on the course of the facts”, indicated Friday afternoon the prosecutor of Carpentras, Hélène Mourges, before the file, “given the criminal qualification of the facts”, is entrusted to the instruction center of the judicial court of Avignon.
Next step now: the results of the autopsies, scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. at the forensic institute of the Nîmes hospital. Because for the moment impossible to specify their sex, impossible to say if they would be twins, and especially impossible to say if the imprisoned mother, after being arrested Thursday morning by the gendarmes of Mormoiron (Vaucluse), is indeed their mother.
“Scientifically, we are waiting for the parentage, or not, of these children,” said prosecutor Hélène Mourges.
