The 33-year-old woman was found guilty of attempted murder, torture of a minor and unlawful confinement after seven hours of jury deliberations.

His 40-year-old accomplice, who ended up asking for help to help the boy who was on the verge of death, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for encouraging the “continuous use of violence” against the child, during virtual conversations and phone calls. When rescued, the victim weighed 40 kilos.

As a result, the two women were admitted to a psychiatric hospital for inmates, as the forensic report found that both had “severe psychological disorders”, despite still having a certain “capacity for discernment”.

The child, now 13 years old, is “completely destroyed”, said the president of the Court of Justice. During the hearing, the woman stated that she just wanted to “discipline” her son and that she was “extremely sorry for what happened”, according to the APA news agency.

On November 22, 2022, the boy fell into a coma with hypothermia and was taken to the hospital. The mother was arrested the next day and taken to the police station in Krems, west of Vienna, where she was remanded in custody.
