A 44-year-old man from Turin was arrested by the Carabinieri of the Oltre Dora company on charges of killing his 75-year-old mother. The woman's lifeless body had been found in her apartment, in the suburban Barca district, last Saturday, but initially the hypothesis had been that the elderly woman had died from an accidental fall. But then the victim's husband spontaneously presented himself at the Carabinieri station to denounce his son, accusing him of mistreatment in the family, harassment and aggression suffered over time.

The latter would then retract the first version of the accidental fall admitting that he had hit his mother with a fist.
