Stabbed father remandedd

A TWELVE-YEAR-OLD who stabbed her father as he tried to strangle her mother is now at home.

The woman has now recovered from her injuries but her 61-year-old-husband was transferred from Elda hospital to a secure ward in Alicante General hospital for treatment for the four stab wounds in his back which also affected a lung

Once recovered, an Elda judge has ordered that he should be remanded in custody without bail.


The girl was held overnight in a young people’s centre where she was assisted by a psychologist but, being under 14, she cannot face criminal charges.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
