31st August 2010, Comments 0 comments

A three-year-old boy has been found hanged next to the body of his badly-beaten mother in the cellar of a house in Germany, media reports said on Tuesday.

Police in Bavaria in southern Germany confirmed that the bodies of the boy and the 37-year-old woman had been found in Rosenheim on Monday, but declined to comment on how they had died.

A hunt was under way for the 48-year-old father of the child, who was separated from his mother and had reportedly recently been released from prison.
