15-year-old Belgian girl plans mother's murder
A 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old male have been detained following the bizarre murder of the girl's mother.
The girl has confessed that she asked her boyfriend to carry out the killing.
The murder happened in Leopoldsburg in Limburg province. On Thursday the girl alerted the police saying that she discovered a bloodbath when she returned home from a trip to the shops to buy cigarettes.
Detectives soon established that this was not exactly what had happened.
Marc Rubbens, the public prosecutor of Limburg, confirmed to the VRT that the killing of the mother had been planned by the two youngsters and that it was the boyfriend who committed the murder.
A youth magistrate has decided that the two minors will be held in a closed youth penitentiary.
In addition to her 15-year-old daughter the mother also had 7-year-old twins.
