A man has been charged with the murder of a young mother who was raped and strangled to death with her own trousers before being dumped in a field. 

The body of Brisa Abril Formoso Sobrado, 19, was discovered by a group of children playing in Ranelagh, in Buenos Aires province in Argentina on Sunday. 

She had been reported missing by her mother just 24 hours earlier after she failed to return home from a night out on Friday.  

Brisa, the mother of a young child, had met Hugo Ivan Morales, 23, at a birthday party in the neighbouring town of Guillermo Enrique Hudson. 

The victim attended the event with her cousin, who told police that Brisa left at around 5.30 am with Morales, who she had never met before. 

While police launched an investigation, locals accused the force of not taking the case seriously and erupted in anger when her body was discovered by a group of children in an overgrown field, according to local media outlet MinutoUno. 

The family of the tragic mother also claimed they were fired upon with rubber bullets by police when they approached the scene to identify her body.

Following the grisly discovery, investigators immediately tracked down Morales, from the neighbouring town of Platanos, who was reportedly found with several scratches on his arm. 

Police are said to believe they may have been caused by Brisa as she defended herself from the alleged attack.

Morales was unable to account for the wounds, reported news outlet Infobae.    

He had also allegedly washed his clothes from the night of the incident, but forensics were able to pick up several bloodstains, reported MinutoUno.  

Morales was arrested and charged with homicide aggravated by gender violence.

Police have conducted a thorough search of his home.

Brisa’s body is currently undergoing an autopsy, with preliminary results suggesting she was sexually assaulted and strangled to death with her own trousers while trying to fight off her attacker. 

Morales could face life in prison if convicted.
