Police investigating premeditated murder of 12 year old boy by his mother

Police are investigating the premeditated murder of a 12 year boy by his mother.

The boy was found dead in his bed at home in Yeri. The mother is undergoing surgery at Nicosia Hospital after reportedly trying to kill herself.

Nicosia CID chief Neophytos Shiailos said several sharp objects were found in the Yeri apartment. “These appear to have been used for the crime we are investigating, which is premeditated murder,” he said.

“From initial inquiries it appears that the mother is involved,” he said.

The woman is from Kazakhstan.

Police said they had been called to a second floor apartment in Yeri where there was a dead child and an injured woman.

She was rushed to hospital and is undergoing surgery.

“From initial inquiries it appears we have a family tragedy,”  the CID chief said.

The woman and child were found after the 52 year old Greek Cypriot husband —  who is the child’s step father and a policeman —  called the fire services to gain access to the locked apartment which he had been unable to enter earlier today.

Asked whether the woman faced any medical or other issues, Shialios replied: “She faced various health issues.”

He did not elaborate.
