Suspect held in Almeria over strangled woman


A MAN who allegedly suffocated a 48-year-old woman at a house given over the growth and sale of marihuana has been remanded in custody by a court in Almeria.

Police discovered the woman’s lifeless body at the house on the Calle Agua Amarga on March 7.

They initially believed her death to have been natural but following further investigations the 48-year-old was found to have died from asphyxiation.

Officers arrested the man thirteen hours after finding the victim’s body for suspected homicide, burglary and drugs crimes.

The house where the woman’s remains were found had two of its rooms fitted with equipment to speed up the growth of marihuana. It was also used as a sale point for the drug, according to police.
