A 64 year old man has been arrested in the La Corredoria area of Oviedo on suspicion of killing his 59 year old wife.
The couple’s son called the police after his father told him that he had killed his mother. Police went to the house and when the father eventually opened the door, the officers found the body of the woman on the living room couch.
The woman had several wounds, including one to the neck, apparently caused by a knife.
There were previous no reports of abuse within the family but it is thought that the man suffered from some sort of mental illness.
