The Civil Guard has detained a 51-year-old man as the alleged perpetrator of the death of his 48-year-old wife from a gunshot in the Asturian town of Pola de Laviana, sources from the armed institute have informed Efe.

The events occurred around 4:20 am last morning in an apartment located at number 3 of Tarna port street, sources close to the investigation have added.

The homicide was reported to the Civil Guard by a 20-year-old son of the couple.

The Government Delegation against Gender Violence is already working to confirm if the murder is a new case of gender violence. If so, so far this year there would be 13 women murdered in Spain due to sexist violence.
