Spanish National Police have arrested a man after finding him in a house in Campanillas, Malaga next to the decaying corpse of a man with multiple stabbed wounds.

According to the investigation, the deceased man, aged 49, lived with the 51-year-old arrested man, with Officers from the Scientific and Homicide Group of the Spanish Police currently opening investigations into what occurred in the household, believing the corpse to be at least two days old from the time it was found.
