A man in Alicante allegedly killed his wife before taking his own life. The 90-year-old reportedly killed his 86-year-old wife at an apartment building located on Calle San Bartolome in El Campello Alicante. He is reported to have then committed suicide.
Police investigators believe the woman died from asphyxiation, even though the officers purportedly found blood on the bed and her body is said to have suffered sharp force trauma. The husband is said to have killed himself by stabbing himself in the neck with a kitchen knife and it appears the bodies were found by their daughter shortly before midnight, according to elmundo.es.
Police are now to determine whether the woman had previously lodged a complaint against her husband for domestic abuse and whether she was indeed killed by her partner, which would increase the number of women who have lost their lives at the hands of their partners so far this year to 38.
