Councilor of Rio de Janeiro was the author of kicks, punches and kicks that led to the child’s death
The councilman Dr. Jairinho (Solidarity), stepfather of the boy Henry Borel, who died a month ago, was arrested next to the child’s mother, Monique Medeiros, for direct involvement in crime. They were at Monique’s mother’s house in Bangu, on the west side of the Rio de Janeiro. According to the investigations, the four-year-old was killed with kicks, punches, kicks and other types of aggressions committed by his stepfather. The mother would have been aware of the frequent crimes, but she hid the boy’s father and the rest of the family. The couple was taken to the 16th Police Station, in Barra da Tijuca. Dr. Jairinho is charged with double homicide for nasty reasons. Henry Borel was killed in the apartment where he lived with his mother and stepfather on March 8, also in Barra.
