Caroline, 29, killed Isaac, her 3-year-old son, on Tuesday September 29 in Brazil.
She strangled the boy to death on the side of a highway, between Curitiba and Campo Largo.
Then she went to the forest where she hid her child’s body in a bag, with her favorite toys.
The young woman was then found near a river. Rescuers found her after she tried to injure herself in what appears to be a suicide attempt.
She was taken to hospital where she had an operation.
Caroline has been charged with murder and will be heard when her condition improves. The motive for the crime is not yet known but, according to the first elements of the investigation, she was jealous of her 3-year-old son.
The young woman felt neglected because her husband placed too much importance on the child and did not take enough care of her.
