ESTUPINAN RODRIGUEZ, Norge et al. Filicide: historical notes and current thought. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.3, pp.499-506. ISSN 1684-1824.

A person killing another is something frequent in our performance as law professionals, but a mother killing her children is a few frequent, bad studied sociopathologic phenomena, with not many reports in Cuban forensic environment. Conceptually, this crime is named filicide, and designs the death of the proper child by the hand of the father or mother. Filicide generates a deep refusal in Cuban society, and therefore, it is hard penalized, because in many aspects it is the abrupt rupture of the social norm, like children protection and care from the part of the parents, and more specifically from the part of mother. This article was written in the view of the events that shocked the city of Matanzas on February 2015, and as posthumous remembrance of those children who lost their life in this abominable crime; it contains the historical national and international antecedents of similar events, and also an elucidating approach to the theme.

Palabras clave : filicide; crime; history.
