The news agency message about it:
A 24-year-old man has confessed to killing the seven-year-old son of his partner and seriously injuring his eight-year-old sister over a new bed the children had damaged while playing, investigative sources were quoted as saying by multiple newspapers on Tuesday. Tony Essoubti Badre, who lived in Cardito, Naples, with the seven and eight-year-old, their four-year-old sister, who was not injured, and the children's mother, allegedly punched and kicked the two children but denied hitting them with a broom, investigative sources were quoted as saying. The man, who is currently detained on voluntary manslaughter charges, reportedly said he was angry that the children had damaged part of a new bed because "we had made sacrifices to buy it" when questioned by police. Investigators are trying to determine the role played by the children's mother. Sources with knowledge of the probe said testimony provided by the murdered boy's sister, who reported severe but not life-threatening injuries, is proving key for police.
