A 40 year old Spanish woman, named only with the initials M.P.M.R. has been arrested in Tenerife in connection with the murder of her 62 year old German partner. She was found yesterday thrown to the ground and crying in a commercial centre in the Playa de Las Américas. She confessed to the crime, four days after carrying it out.

The body of the man, which had multiple stab wounds, was found in a house at Urbanisation Coralmar. The Guardia Civil say he had been dead for some days. It’s seems a simple domestic argument led to the fight. She is now being given a psychiatric evaluation.
