On Saturday he called the Civil Guard and said he had found his dead partner after waking up because of the crying of the son they have in common. This Monday he was arrested as the alleged murderer of the woman, who was beheaded. Both resided in Planes (Alicante) and came from neighboring Alcoy. He is 34 years old. She was 29. The judge has decreed summary secrecy in this case pointing to a new murder for gender violence.
The first signs made the investigators suspect a possible suicide because there were no signs of violence in the home. The autopsy performed on the victim has revealed that he had wounds "incompatible" with that possibility, according to the examination of the Institute of Legal Medicine of Alicante.
The man has been arrested as an alleged perpetrator of a crime of homicide for gender violence. If this new case is confirmed, we would be facing the eighth mortal victim of sexist violence in 2019. Since the official recount began in 2003, 982 women have been murdered by their partners or ex-partners. Last Thursday he was arrested in Alcalá de Henares orn man who kept the corpse of his girlfriend in a chest, another case pending confirmation.
The detainee in Alicante this Monday was the one who gave the warning and alleged that he found his dead partner after waking up because of the crying of her baby. According to sources of the investigation, the man supposedly would have cut the woman's throat while she slept.
At dawn on Saturday, around 6:00, the detainee telephoned the emergency services warning that when descending to the ground floor of the house found on the floor the lifeless body of the woman next to a knife. Agents of the judicial police of the Civil Guard of Villena took charge of the investigation. At first they suspected that it could be a possible suicide and there were no detainees waiting for the autopsy.
Both the mortal victim and his partner and now detained were not known in the town of Planes, where they had arrived about a year ago.
