A 39 year-old Spanish man is under arrest in Torrevieja for allegedly murdering his partner. Neighbours heard a heated and noisy argument in the early hours of Saturday morning and even knocked on the door, but received no response.
Several hours later the alleged aggressor turned himself in at the Civil Guard barracks in the town and when officers went to the home on Calle Concordia, they found the lifeless body of his partner.
The victim was the 35-year-old mother of the man’s three year-old daughter. It is believed that at the time of the attack, the daughter was at the home of a relative.
