A 47-year-old woman of Spanish nationality has died today when she was stabbed in a house in Fuengirola (Málaga) and her ex-partner, a 50-year-old German citizen, was arrested shortly after in Marbella as the alleged perpetrator of the death, as reported by police sources.
After 7:00 pm, the Police received several calls regarding a possible case of sexist violence in a house located on the Camino de Coín in Fuengirola, where the agents found the victim.
The Emergencias 112 Andalucía service registered at the same time the call of a private person who requested help for a woman who had suffered an assault, according to her son.
The 112 mobilized its troops, who confirmed the death of the victim and treated minor injuries to his son, a minor of 16 years.
The police began the search for the ex-partner of the victim – a man of German nationality – as possible perpetrator of the incident, whom the agents located shortly after at the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella (Málaga), where he had come because he had wound.
At around 9.30 pm, the corpse has been lifted for transfer to the Institute of Legal Medicine, where an autopsy will be performed.
According to the sources, there are no previous complaints from the victim or restraining orders.
It is the second victim of sexist violence so far this year. On January 3, another woman, aged 26 and Dominican nationality, died after being allegedly stabbed by her boyfriend, 29 years old and Ecuadorian nationality, in the Cantabrian town of Laredo.
During 2018, 47 women died at the hands of their partners or ex-partners and 39 children were orphaned.
