THE LATEST incident in a tragic week for Spain sees police searching for the  killer of a woman who was stabbed to death this morning (Thursday) on the Costa del Sol.

A manhunt is underway for a man suspected of murdering his 46-year-old partner in Torrox, Malaga.

A body was discovered inside of an apartment with stab wounds according to Spanish media.


The incident follows a week of domestic violence-related deaths.

Two women and two children have been killed in three separate incidents.  Their deaths are all being linked to episodes of domestic violence.

In Bilbao, a custodial dispute saw a man violently murder his wife after she was denied a restraining order from a Basque gender violence court.

In Castellon, a 48-year-old father killed his two daughters, six and two, before jumping out the window of his sixth-floor apartment, killing himself.

In Granada, a husband, 49, stabbed his ex-wife to death and is now in police custody.

According to figures recorded by the Equality ministry, this week’s incidents have brought the tally for domestic violence-related deaths in Spain to 41 so far in 2018.
