The police used strict protocols to approach the body as cause of death is still unknown.
A woman has been sentenced to eight years in prison for running over her ex-husband three times and attempting to kill him.
The events took place in January 2013, when the man had gone shopping at the Lidl store in Churriana.
The former Torremolinos policewoman, who was on leave for depression and had divorced her husband just weeks earlier, allegedly left their daughters at tennis lessons and went to the store’s car park.
When she saw him with his back to her, she allegedly accelerated and hit him.
When he was on the ground, she reversed over him.
Staff and clients assisted him and a woman took the attacker’s car keys from her although she remained in the vehicle.
However, a member of staff returned the keys to her so she could move her vehicle from the exit and she attempted to hit the victim a third time while he was sitting on a chair.
She crashed into another vehicle and some rubbish containers, but a member of staff was able to pull the man out of the way before she hit him.
He remained in hospital for 13 days due to his injuries, which included broken ribs.
The couple had argued over domestic matters earlier that morning and the woman was suffering from depression, but claimed in court she never intended to kill her husband.
She is banned from coming near her ex-husband or communicating with him for 10 years and has to pay him €7,701 in compensation.
