The Policía Nacional arrested a German citizen in Málaga yesterday, suspected of being behind a case of homicide in Marbella.
The victim, a 40-year-old Spaniard, had coincided with the suspect at an illegal fiesta in the early hours of the morning in the Urbanización Guadalmina in Marbella.

The whereabouts of the suspect was determined around 11.00h yesterday morning followed by arrests – both men had been caught as they were attemping to flee the country.
