Police tracked down and detained the suspect about three kilometres away from the burning shack in the La Goleta area in the provincial capital’s Almadrabillas park.

There was a restraining order in place against the 45-year-old prohibiting him from going near his ex or from contacting her.

As well as a charge for gender-based violence, the authorities have also charged him with breaching order.
