The alleged victim, Solange Ramona Romero Mota, 50, went to the police station to report the attack.
According to her statement, the incident happened after the couple’s two-year-old daughter accidentally swallowed Rivotril pills – a tranquiliser drug sometimes known as Clonazepam – and threw away the bottle.
Solange described how the model, began to verbally abuse the little girl and she intervened.
At this point her son grabbed onto her neck and strangled her until she could not breath, after which Canales punched her in her left eye, leaving her unconscious for some minutes.
The couple were arrested shortly afterwards and are due to appear before a tribunal.
