Held after 5 days spent with boyfriend’s corpse in Velez-Malaga

A woman, 39, was arrested after spending five days with the dead body of her partner in his Velez-Malaga home. She was charged with failing to provide assistance, as police say she could have called a doctor when her partner was dying.

The body of the 37-year-old man was found by his mother after she had attempted to contact him without success for several days. He was discovered on the sofa of the home he shared with the detainee.

The body had already begun to decompose, according to witnesses.

The mother called the emergency service and the police, who were only able to certify his death. His body showed no signs of violence and it is believed he died of natural causes.

The police then located his girlfriend, who confessed at the police station that she had spent five days in the house with the body after he died.

According to the detainee, her boyfriend became ill on September 1. When she realized he had died she covered him with a sheet.
