Police are investigating a murder in Sóller, Palma, where it appears that a man killed his wife and then took his own life.
The pair, both Spanish nationals, were married but not living together. They had two children, although fortunately they were not in the house at the time of the incident.
The incident occurred at 16:00 at Can Prohom farm, located on the road between Sóller and Deiá. The man, 47-year-old JMB, went to the farm with his brother. It is thought he strangled his wife, 45-year-old RMMB, and then killed himself with a shotgun. The brother raised the alarm after hearing the shot.
There were apparently no previous reports of abuse within the family unit.
