Man shots dead his 6-month-old son after wife refused to have sex with him
A Brazilian man has allegedly shot dead his six-month-old son after his wife refused to have sex with him.
Police have charged Maycon Salustiano Silva, 25, with killing his son in the early hours of Wednesday morning after arguing with his 20-year-old wife Jeniffer at their home in Luziania, Brazil, DailyMail reported.
The baby, named Michel, was pronounced dead in the hospital two hours after the incident.
The accused allegedly claimed he had been drinking and smoking marijuana and ‘didn’t remember what happened.’
Detective Daniel Martins Ferreira, investigating the case, said police believe Silva shot the infant at point blank range ‘in a moment of rage.’
‘We believe the suspect, in a moment of rage when he didn’t get what he wanted, shot the child at point blank range by resting the gun on the baby’s chest as he lay in the cot in his parent’s bedroom,’ he told local media.
A 22 gauge pistol was recovered tucked down the back of a sofa in the family’s living room, along with several rounds of ammunition.
‘The mother reported that her husband woke her up and wanted to have sex with her. She said she was tired and ‘did not want to’.
‘He then apparently became irritated and physically assaulted her in the argument that followed.’
In the midst of the quarrel, it is claimed Silva went to get some water but returned with a gun which he pointed at his wife.
‘At first he allegedly threatened to kill wife Jeniffer. She begged her husband to stay calm, but he only became angrier,’ Ferreira said.
‘She claims he turned the gun on their son and pointed the gun at his chest while demanding if she believed he had the courage to shoot their child. Then he allegedly shot the baby.’
Neighbours who heard the woman’s screams called the police around 1.30am. Approximately two hours after police were called, an ambulance arrived at the family’s home. The infant was rushed to an emergency unit, but pronounced dead on arrival.
Silva, who has no previous criminal record, was arrested and charged with manslaughter and the illegal possession of a weapon. He is also accused of domestic violence.Follow @gorkhapost
