Police on Saturday arrested a man in Lugo who is being investigated for his alleged involvement in the death of his partner, whose body was found in a house in that city on Friday night. In Granada, another 24-year-old has been arrested as the alleged perpetrator of the murder of his ex-partner, a 39-year-old woman who has died from stab wounds.
According to police sources to which EFE has had access, the man detained in Lugo had been the victim’s partner since last summer and is being investigated for homicide, gender violence and domestic violence. The victim’s mother had alerted about 22 p.m. Friday of the discovery of the body, with stab wounds in various parts of the body, in a house in the As Gándaras neighborhood.
In Granada, the event took place at 5:45 p.m. in the victim’s home, in the Zaidín neighborhood. The woman has died from stab wounds. The alleged perpetrator, who initially fled, has turned himself in to the Guadix Civil Guard units.
Government Subdelegation sources have explained that everything points to a sexist crime and that the victim had not filed complaints. After the crime, the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, has stated on her Twitter account that “we can face a new sexist murder. It is essential that our society accompanies, takes care and educates so that there is no more murder. We are not going to stop until you get it. A hug to family and friends of the victim. We want to live. “
