Mum suffocated son, 3, before bundling body in blanket and dumping him in river

An evil mother has been jailed for life for murdering her young son and dumping his body in a river.

Ana Celia Gomez protested her innocence but was found guilty of slaughtering her 3-year-old, Alexis Mamani.

She was found guilty of beating and suffocating the innocent boy, according to local reports.

The murderous mum killed her child at their home in Florida, Argentina, in March 2018 before throwing his corpse into the Rio Grande.

He was washed down stream and found 1.6 miles away the next day, local outlets said.

Witnesses claimed to have seen Gomez leaving her home carrying a bundle covered with a blanket on the day of the incident.

A call to a local taxi company asking for an immediate car was among the evidence used to convict the defendant.

Gomez took the stand for around 30 minutes where she maintained her innocence while making contradictory claims in hope of securing a more favourable verdict, according to local media.

Wearing a pink shirt and a face mask, she reportedly showed no mercy.

According to the newspaper TN, the reason behind the vicious murder is unclear, but experts said Gomez has psychopathic traits after undergoing an evaluation.

The report added that she has another son named Joel Mamani who is also a minor and is now expected to be placed in the care of his biological father.

One of the prosecutors said: "It will remain solely on her conscience why she did it".

Evil Gomez was sentenced to life behind bars at a hearing on December 9.

The killer mum will spend at least 25-years in prison for her crime, according to local reports.
