A mother was arrested for stabbing her son to death with the help of teenagers.

The mother of Brazil, stabbed her 17-year-old son with the help of two teenagers whom she paid to help carry out the murder.

Tatiana Lozano Pereira, 32, and her husband, Alex, 30, who is the boy’s stepfather, then dumped the body in an abandoned building and set him on fire.

Pereira admitted to killing her son Itaberli Lozano, because she hated him for being gay.

Family members said that a few weeks ago, the mother and son got into a big fight, and he went to live with his grandmother.

However, Pereira pretended that she forgave him and urged him to return home.

When he agreed to return home, Pereira hired two hitmen, Miller da Silva Barissa, 18, and Victor Roberto da Silva, 19, to kill her son.

She hid them inside her house, and she ordered the thugs to ambush her son and kill him.

However, they failed to kill him so Pereira grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed her son to death, according to detective Helton Tosti Renz.

The paternal grandmother of the victim reported his disappearance to the police.

The officers became suspicious because Pereira had not reported him missing and she seemed surprisingly indifferent to his disappearance.

His charred remains were found in a nearby field.

Authorities said that the mother confessed to the killing during a police interrogation.

She also told them about the two thugs she hired to kill her gay son, but claimed that her husband was innocent.

Police arrested the mother and the thugs on charges of murder.
The stepfather was charged with concealment of the body.

The victim’s uncle Dario Rosa, said that his nephew “had a job, was very polite and he never fought with anyone. He only had problems with his mother, who did not accept that he was a homosexual.”

“The family is torn and it will be difficult to recover,” Rosa added.
