A 91-YEAR-OLD man was killed by his daughter, 70, in Villaviciosa de Odon, Madrid. When Guardia Civil arrived at the scene, they found the man had been shot in the head with a revolver. The family called the emergency services requesting health care, but when paramedics arrived, the victim, who suffered from senile dementia, was already dead.
His daughter, who was with her husband at the time and does not have a criminal record, was arrested, although the Guardia Civil are carrying out a thorough investigation to determine whether she fired the shots as she claimed.
The officers are following two lines of investigation, the first of which is that the killing was carried out for compassionate reasons, and the second, family problems, although not economic reasons, as the victim did not have a large amount of money to leave as an inheritance.
