Motril's Policía Nacional have also arrested a 23-year-old woman in connection with a recent murder in Barrio San Antonio, following the arrest of a man (35).
Both the man, who is already being held in custody, and the younger woman have criminal records. They stand accused of killing the 55-year-old victim. All three are Spaniards.
It would appear to have been a mugging that went wrong and ended in the fatal stabbing of the victim on the street, where his body was found the next morning.
The woman was picked up and arrested on Wednesday on the same day of the murder; 19th of March.
Both suspects are being remanded in custody in the provincial jail in Albolote.
