THE private accusation in the case against Jose Breton is asking for 40 years in prison for the murder of his two children.
Ruth and Jose were reported missing by their father on October 8, 2011, in Cordoba. However, his story of how they disappeared made police suspect he was involved and children’s remains were later found on a bonfire he had made on a property belonging to his parents. He was arrested on October 18, 2011 and sent to prison.
Although the fire was made so hot that it destroyed any DNA evidence, a trial will be held against Breton because other evidence points to him having killed his two children. He denies this.
Once the trial is over, the children’s mother will ask for the remains which were found on the bonfire so she can bury them.
A first report regarding the remains found on the fire said that they were not human, but a later report, in September this year, claimed the opposite.
