On Saturday, they were found murdered and buried in the back garden of their house located in Monte Chingolo, in the province of Buenos Aires, eastern Argentina.

Local media report suspect Abel Romero was found walking the streets in the Rafael Calzada area, breaking the coronavirus quarantine in Argentina.

He had reportedly been spending the quarantine with the mother and daughter.

When he was interrogated, he reportedly told officers that the woman and girl were dead, saying that three men had killed them before forcing him to bury the bodies.

Forensic police went to the scene and found the bodies along with bloodstains on a mattress which had been cleaned and dragged through the house.

After Romero gave a contradictory statement he became a suspect and local media report he then confessed to having killed the woman.

He reportedly said he had stabbed the victims, with the mother having been stabbed in the neck and chest at least seven times, with the girl receiving two stab wounds, also to the neck and chest.

Romero was sent to the prosecutor in charge of the investigation Jorge Griego who had asked for citizens to help locate the victims after they were first reported as missing.

The victim’s brother said she had been in a relationship with the suspect who has been charged with double homicide. He is facing a life sentence if found guilty.

Local media report he has a criminal record for domestic violence from a previous relationship.

The investigation is ongoing.
