A woman charged with the double murder of her two daughters has been sentenced by a court in Cascais to the maximum jail term of 25 years in prison.

The two young girls, aged 19 months and four years, drowned on Giribita beach in Oeiras, west of Lisbon, in February last year.
In their verdict, the judges ruled that their mother, Sónia Lima, “entered the sea with her daughters with the aim of taking their lives.”
They said Lima “acted freely, deliberately and consciously [and] knew that it was conduct punishable by law.”
