Rosana Auri da Silva Candido Biography Rosana Auri da Silva Candido Wiki
A mother and her partner have spent a total of 129 years in jail for stabbing, chipping, skinning and grilling her nine-year-old son.
Rosana Auri da Silva Candido, 27, and her lover Kacyla Pryscila Santiago Damasceno Pessoa, 28, were sentenced to 65 and 64 years in prison on November 25 in the Brazilian administrative region of Samambaia.
The couple 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 stabbed a total of eleven times in the chest and eyes while sleeping, mainly by Rosana while Kacyla held him.
The pair then dismembered her body and brushed her face.
They tried burning her remains on a grill before giving up on the idea and packing the body parts in two backpacks and a suitcase.
The police were called by two young witnesses who saw Rosana dispose of the suitcase near a kindergarten in the administrative region.
One of the two children curiously opened the abandoned suitcase and Rhuan’s head unrolled with a protruding knife.
The couple were quickly detained at Kacyla’s home, where they lived with Rhuan and Kacyla’s eight-year-old daughter, who allegedly witnessed the crime.
Rosana later confessed to the police that “she felt hatred and did not like the child.”
It was determined that the crime was motivated by her dislike for the boy’s paternal family.
According to Guilherme Melo, the police officer who coordinated the case, “Rosana said that she was very vindictive and even compared herself to the God of justice in the Old Testament.”
Since then, Kacyla’s daughter has returned to Rio Branco to live with her father.
The eight-year-old girl has been missing since 2014, when Kacyla and Rosana secretly fled the community and took her with Rhuan.
Rhuan was living with his paternal grandparents when he was kidnapped by Rosana.
The boy’s father, Maycon Douglas Lima de Castro, who had custody of the boy, reported his disappearance to the police at the time.
Rosana is said to have tortured his son physically and mentally on a regular basis.
When Maycon learned of the sentences, he told local media: “It is still very little, but at least they will never get out of jail.”
