A man of 22 has been found guilty of the murder of his mother by a court in Castellon and has been sentenced to 27 years in jail for the murder. The killing took place when the man attacked his mother at their home with a knife, stabbing her more than thirty times in a frenzied attack. He then set fire to the building hoping to destroy the evidence but fire-fighters put out the blaze and the body was later discovered. The arson attack endangered other residents of the building said the prosecutors, including members of the man’s own family. The attack took place in the northern Valencian town of Vinaros in October 2015. The man has confessed to the murder and apologised to his family although his motives remain unclear.
