British pensioner kills wife


GUARDIA Civil have launched a murder investigation following the death of an 86 year old British woman.

The expat, who had allegedly been beaten by her 86-year-old husband before he killed her, then attempted to take his own life.

The incident happened at the weekend in the Orpea Residential Home of El Campello.

Officers attending the scene accompanied the husband to the hospital where he was treated for superficial wounds before being taken into custody.

The El Campello town hall stated that the Local Violence Unit for Gender Violence had no record of any previous incidents involving the couple.

The council held a minute silence on Monday at midday at the town hall to show their solidarity with the victim and all women victims of such crimes.
