A 49-year-old British woman was strangled to death at her home in an apartment complex in Costa de la Calma in the early hours of this morning. The victim, identified only as Lisa Jane L., appeared to have been suffocated using the cable from a mobile phone charger. Police were last night holding her 50-year-old British husband. He had telephoned the emergency services in the early hours of the morning and allegedly confessed to the killing, according to Spanish news agency, EFE, quoting the emergency services. He is now in custody at the main Guardia Civil barracks in Palma and he is expected to be taken before a judge on Monday at the main law courts in Palma. He will be questioned and then the judge, based on the evidence, will decide whether or not to remand him in custody to await a trial date.
