Two boys arrested after mum’s body found gagged in boot of her car

Two children have been apprehended on suspicion of murder following the discovery of their mother’s lifeless body in the boot of her car.

The deceased, a 48-year-old woman identified only as Silvia L G, was found gagged in the boot of her car at approximately 9 pm on Wednesday.

Police stumbled upon her body in a garage near the family residence in Castro Urdiales, a town in northern Spain close to Bilbao, and realised that the two boys were absent.

Both youths were detained in Cotolino Park at around 2:15 am today following a police search.

One of them is reportedly below the age of 14, falling under the threshold of criminal responsibility according to Spanish law, while the other is older but still a minor.
