A YOUNGSTER from Mallorca has been found guilty of strangling his mother to death with an electric cable after knocking her unconscious with a dumbbell.
Antonio Llompart Perun, 20, faces up to 20 years in prison after a jury in Palma de Mallorca found him guilty of murdering his mother in the early hours of February 28, 2013.
His father, Antonio Llompart Mora, 81, was found not guilty of any involvement in the murder but faces three years in jail for domestically abusing his wife over a ten year period.
According to the victim’s diary, found by the National Police, she had been abused by her husband and son since the boy was 13 and feared for her life on a daily basis.
The youth, who already had a criminal record, confessed to the crime late last year, claiming his father had not been involved.
After killing her, Perun reportedly searched the internet for information on how to clean up a crime scene and the emergency services were not called for several hours.
