Young mother killed near Nicaraguan border

Another young mother has been murdered, and the suspect is her male companion.

The Judicial Investigating Organization identified the dead woman by the last name of Urbina and said she was 21. The killing happened on the second floor of the home the couple shared with a 3-month-old child in Caño La Venada, de Chorreras, de Pocosol de San Carlos, said agents.

The woman died from a bullet from a small-caliber rifle about 3 p.m. Monday, said agents. The male suspect then left the area and took the child with him on a boat to nearby Nicaragua. He was detained by Nicaraguan police, and the child was put in the custody of an aunt there, said the judicial agency.
