 Police Authorities in the southeastern Brazilian state of São Paulo charged a 37-year-old mother with murdering her three-year-old son before she tried to kill herself.  

State prosecutor Neudival Mascarehna formally accused Andréia Freitas on Thursday of intentional homicide. 

It's alleged that on May 10, the mother-of-two was at home with her youngest son, Gael de Farias, at the family's 11th-floor apartment in the downtown São Paulo neighborhood of Bela Vista, when she beat him to death, according to Brazilian news 

Freitas was briefly hospitalized at Mandaqui Hospital and then arrested May 11 after the police took her testimony.

Mascarehna also ordered a full mental evaluation of Freitas, who has been placed in pre-trial detention.

Freitas could face between 12 to 20 years in prison if she is convicted.
