Court of Instruction Nº3 in Orihuela has ordered provisional prison without bail for the parents of the newborn baby found dead in a rubbish container last Tuesday night in Pilar de la Horadada.
The couple, who gave declarations to the magistrate on Thursday, are being investigated for a possible case of murder. Another two people who were arrested also passed through the court, who are the flatmates of the baby’s parents. They were provisionally released but are being investigated for allegedly covering things up.
The events happened last Tuesday night when a person who was looking for scrap in a bin found the lifeless body of the newborn.
