Mum, 27, sentenced for stabbing her 3-year-old son to death to get 'revenge' on ex-husband



A mum has been sentenced to almost 30 years behind bars for stabbing her three-year-old son to death in an apparent bid to "get revenge" on her ex-husband.



Millena Iris Santos da Paixão, 27, killed her son Marcos Paulo Vieirato on December 11 2019, in the Brazilian town of Medicilandia.



Neighbours told reporters that they heard an argument between Paixão and her ex-husband shortly before the tragic incident.



Paixão claimed to have been in the grip of a psychotic episode when she committed the crime and reportedly attempted suicide by stabbing herself with the same knife shortly after killing her son.







Friends say that after killing the boy, she uploaded a photo of her wounds to social media with the caption: "Love your wife. Marriage is serious."
