After the crimes, Jaime Moisés tried to commit suicide in the bathroom with a kitchen knife, but he failed in the attempt and only caused injuries that warranted admission to hospital from Garbagnate, of which he was discharged hours later.

From there, police elements transferred him to the San Vittore prison, where he is currently being held, but he has not made any statement. In the next few days an autopsy will be carried out on the woman’s body to determine the exact cause of her death.

According to the accounts, the couple migrated with their three children a month ago to the Italian province, but, despite the fact that the man found a job in a factory, he was fired due to his violent character.
